EDIT16 provides 2,613 authority records for printers’ and publishers’ devices.

Authority records provide the description of the main figurative elements, the reference to related publishers, the dates when they were used and any mottoes that may be present.

Each device includes one or more standard citations serving as identifiers. Such citations are references to bibliographic sources and comprise one character referred to the source and the number of each image within the source, e.g. Z534 (Z=Zappella 534=number of the device in the book). A device has as many citations as the reference books in which it appears among the six references for the Census:
