From a composite series or a regrouping of forty-nine etchings, titled Variæ Architecturæ Formae, which combines two series by Hans Vredeman de Vries: 1) twenty plates and a dedication (here reworked as a title plate) with oval architectural perspective views for intarsia work (Hollstein XLVII.69.51-71); and 2) twenty-eight plates with small architectural perspective views (Hollstein XLVII.88.72-100).Variæ Architecturæ Formae was first published under this title and as a composite series in 1601 by Theodoor Galle in Antwerp. Galle produced a later edition with plate numbers; plates 1-20 are the intarsia plates and plates 21-48 are the small architectural views. While plate 49 bears Galle's address and is included in Variæ Architecturæ Formae, it is most likely not after Hans Vredeman de Vries.
