No. And description is a bit fuzzy. The title is 'I Modi', Northwestern University Press, 1988 (large size paperback). So many supposed copies by others (mostly supplied) that it's hard to keep track of what's what. Original drawings supposedly by Romano, etched by Marcantaonio Raimondi, but it doesn't appear that any of the original ethings are known, and the illustrations from 'I Modi' look like woodcuts, and not terribly good ones. Aretino's 'sonnets' are given in facsimile (in Italian of course).
