Although printed in Holland, the work was entered in the Stationers' register in London, Nov. 18, 1633, in the name of Charles Green; but internal evidence, as well as Morton's dedication to the Commissioners For Foreign Plantations-a body not created until April 28, 1634-would show that it was not published as early as that date. cf.
