"The New English Canaan ... is a sort of satire upon the Plymouth and Massachusetts people, who looked upon the author as a reprobate and an outlaw. ... Morton's book, though printed in Holland 'in the yeare 1637,' was entered in the Stationers' Register in London, 'Nov. 18, 1633,' in the name of Charles Greene as publisher ... Morton's book was not written till after the publication of Wood's New England's prospect [1634], to which reference is frequently made ... [and] is dedicated to the Commissioners for Foreign Plantations,--a body not created till April 28, 1634. The book must have been entered at the Stationers' some time in anticipation of its printing ..."--Church, E.D. Discovery, no. 437.
