This edition was edited and translated from the Italian MS. in the Imperial Library at Vienna. The translators have endeavoured to preserve the archaic form and something even of the crudeness of the original. Where the text follows that of the Bible exactly, they have adopted the language of the Revised Version. The more obvious important parallels from the Qorân will be found either cited or referred to in the footnotes.
In regard to the material content, the following are evident: an obvious and primary dependence upon the Christian Bible, especially upon the four Canonical Gospels; frequent insertions of Jewish and Mohammedan matter; and, traces of hagiological and other Mohammedan material. There are 222 chapters. The left pages are in Italian, while the right pages are in English.
