Reiset states that the etching of which Ruland has sent him a tracing does not appear in his copy of the Saint-Morys engravings. This may be because Saint-Morys made many engravings for his own amusement and probably made very few prints of each; when the collection was formed it was too late to find them all. But Reiset adds that he thinks the 'Raphael' drawing after which this etching was made, like many other engravings made by Saint-Morys supposedly after Raphael, was not in fact by Raphael, and is inclined to think it is a sketch by Bandinelli.
