Re: More Evidence of Salomed's forgeries

Sorry, am I understanding correctly that Salomed claimed that Green's triangles (on the William Aspley run) lined up with the marks on the first edition sold by John Wright? Because they don't. Below, I superimposed Green's image (as posted by Salomed) atop the first edition in Gimp. Here are the only changes I made:Matthew Ellard wrote:This is a direct forgery and you specifically state next to the image it is a superimposition using the image from the "British Library" , when it was not.salomed on 27MARCH 2017 wrote: I have taken the image from your link and have superimposed it in GIMP onto the one from the British Library. You can do this yourself in a few minutes. I have moved the top few pixels in the Y+ so you can see how perfectly the points align.
• Resized Green's image, maintaining the aspect ratio, to 645 x 507.
• Reduced the opacity on Green's image to 75%
• Rotated Green's image to line up the text "Neuer before Imprinted" from both images.
• Desaturated the first edition image, and increased the contrast so its text would be visible through Green's image.
Clearly, you can see that, while the text "Neuer before Imprinted" from both images lines up, none of the remaining text, punctuation marks, and lines do. Also, you can read both "William Aspley" from Green's image and "John Wright" from the first edition image.
