"There is no little discrepancy in the views of bibliographers regarding the date of issue of this edition. White Kennett makes it the first complete English edition, placing it under the date of 1597."-Field.

Sabin says that its date is uncertain, but states that it is the same as his Nos. 1563-64—“De Nouo Orbe," etc., published in 1612, with a new title page, and from the fact that the "Epistola Dedicatoria" is not usually found with it, he places the date at even later than 1628. In cataloguing the Menzie copy (which was the same issue as the present), he places the date as (1597),'' and states that it is the "RAREST OF THE ENGLISH VERSIONS OF PETER MARTYR."
