  • In verse
  • Title on second leaf of each part; second part has caption title only
  • Imprint information from colophons: colophon at end of part 1 reads: "Impresso in Messina per Petruzo Spira lo anno del Signore 1535 et adi 27 del mese de Nouembre viii. ind.". Colophon at end of part 2 reads "Impressum Messan[a]e per eundem 1536 13 Ianuarii." The wording of the second colophon suggests that the two parts were probably not issued separately
  • For information on the German printer, Petruccio Spira, and his years of activity in Messina, see La tipografia del '500 in Italia / Fernanda Ascarelli, Marco Menato (Firenze: Olschki, 1989), p. 267-268
