Note
The corresponding prints (5552A and 5553A) are taken from the same edition of the Missale Romanum. This is the only edition of the Missale Romanum that I know that contains both sources for this painting. There is an Antwerp 1702 edition of the Missale that has a closer Adoration of the Holy Sacrament in its title page, (the representation of SS. Peter and Paul are in the middle range of the monstrance), but I do not know whether it also contains the Saint Michael print as frontispiece.
