Unless some confusion had occurred in the records, this appears to have been a second pre-Felton impression of this print: for details and a comparative reproduction, see * Volpato after Raphael The School of Athens {by 1865} Loc? [PR]. The present copy included a key, identifying the main figures in the composition.
