Note
  • The first part of this work, "A relation of the invasion and conquest of Florida ..." is a translation of the anon. Portuguese "Relaçam verdadeira ..." but was made from the French version by Citri de la Guette published a year previous, entitled "Histoire de la conqueste de la Floride ..." Paris, 1685. The new anon. English translator was evidently ignorant of Hakluyt's translation, published in 1609 as "Virginia richly valued ..." and in 1611 as "The worthye and famovs history of the travailes, discouery, & conquest ... of Terra Florida ..." to which it is "very inferior," says W.B. Rye, "and erroneous as to numbers, distances, and names of places." He has taken even his preface and table of chapter headings from the French version, changing only the closing phrase of the French preface "... la Floride, que les François ont découvert par les ordres du Roy ..." to "... the English plantations on that continent ..." and omitting the 5 p. "Privilege du Roy."
  • The "Two journeys of the present emperour of China into Tartary ..." by Ferdinand Verbiest, and "Some discoveries made by the Spaniards in the island of California ..." taken from the letters of the admiral Isidora Atondo y Antillon, are translated from "Voyages de l'empereur de la Chine dans la Tartarie, ausquels on a joint une vouvelle découverte au Mexique," Paris, 1685
  • The first of Verbiest's letters has special t.-p.: "A journey of the emperor of China into East-Tartary. In the year 1682. London: Printed by F. Collins for J. Lawrence, 1686." p. [221]
  • The entire work was reissued with a new t.-p. which omitted all reference to the major portion of its contents, the account of Florida: "Two journeys of the present emperour of China into Tartary, in the years 1682, and 1683. With some discoveries made by the Spaniards in the island of California, in the year 1683. London, Printed for J. Lawrence, 1687." T.-p. of this edition inserted in place of the one noted above which is wanting in Yale copy
