Praise by the publisherEdit

The article notes that the publisher praises (the usefulness of) the book he is trying to sell. This is similar to a present-day publisher's catalog stating that a book is useful. Is this noteworthy?  --Lambiam 08:33, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Promptuarii -> PromptuariumEdit

I moved the page to Promptuarium Iconum Insigniorum. Promptuarii is genitive ("of the promptuary"), which only makes sense if "prima pars" is included ("first part of the promptuary"). Lesgles (talk) 01:44, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

HistoricityEdit

Several of these portraits are used in Wikipedia articles as THE portraits of historical figures, but I'm wondering if that's a good idea. Unless these portraits are actually based on real coins or something from their respective times, they're essentially phantasies and I don't think they should be used in other articles at all. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.61.180.106 (talk) 01:10, 8 September 2020 (UTC)
