Summary expansion
The essays are quasi-scientific dissertations and moral reflections, and include three essays on the history of Jerusalem and sections on the Turks, Knights Templar, and Tamerlane. The author also ponders the origins of languages and alphabets, the invention and use of bells, and ancient burial customs. His scientific curiosity embraces the length of the earth's circumference, the causes of winds, rain and snow; human memory, animals' awareness of time, and the supposed miraculous characteristics of ants and donkeys. This edition is the most complete edition of Roseo's translation, including as it does both the 4th part which had first appeared in the 1555 edition, and also a 5th part, printed here for the first time
