The original edition of Maximilian's account of Magellan's celebrated voyage. The 2d edition was issued at Rome, by Calvus, in November 1523, under title: "Maximiliani Transyluani Caesaris a secretis Epistola, de admirabili & nouissima Hispanoru in Orientem nauigatione." The priority of the present edition is established by the fact that in Cologne the new year began on December 25, and not in March, as was supposed by those bibiliographers who have given the precendence to the Roman edition (e. g. Medina, Bibliografía española de las Islas Filipinas, 1897, p. -22) cf. Schöner ... Reproduction of his globe of 1523, 1888, p. xxii, 153; and Grotefend, Zeitrechnung des deutschen mittelalters, 1891-98, v. 1, p. 88, 23, 205.
