    The two contributors have "del." and "inc." after their name. What do those stand for?

    Hi @calculatedFlame, "del" is an abbreviation of the Latin delineavit - ‘he/she drew [it] - and is used to indicate a particular artist on whose original drawing the print is based.

    "inc" is an abbreviation of incidit or incidebat - engraved by.

    There's a useful glossary here.

    Thanks for asking!
