Title from recto of leaf [1], which is followed by a table of contents.
This manuscript seems to have been transcribed from Hernández's work by Nardo Antonio Recchi, who was the royal protomedicus of the kingdom of Naples, who signed the dedication to Philip II on leaf [3] verso.
Francisco Hernández, who was appointed by Philip II of Spain, as the royal protomedicus of New Spain, spent the years 1570-1577 collecting specimens, relics and viewing and describing minerals, flora, fauna and sites of ethnological interest. This work can be dated to between 1577, after Hernández had returned to Madrid and not after 1587 when the author died.
Place of publication can be assumed to be the Escorial in Madrid because Hernández's reports on his travels were bound and presented to King Philip II by the author. The author's report in his hand was accompanied by illustrations. The author's presentation copy and accompanying illustrations remained in the Escorial until it was destroyed by fire in 1671.
