Martellange, Etienne (1569-1641)
NOTES: As part of the inscription Ton was written on this folio after binding it may belong to the two measured dormers at top left and centre. The inscription Macquelange on the lower drawing refers to Etienne Martellange, a Jesuit architect working in Dijon; this drawing, however, is unidentifiable.

Elaborate elevation of a pedimented double dormer window

NOTES: The drawing is unidentifiable, but the cipher or armorial may be connected with the family of Feydeau de Brou.
