'A Relation of the state of Religion, and with what Hopes and Policies it hath beene Framed, and is maintained, in the severall states of these westerne Partes of the world': at end 'Edwine Sandes. From Paris Aprill. 9. 1599.' On fol. 68v (fols. 69-end are blank) is 'This Booke was given mee by my noble ... Master Sr Edwin Sandys among other goodes and legacies when God Allmightie took him, being the handwriting of Mr Hewlet my predecessor who transcribed it for his said Master and myne ... Ranulph Oxenden', who was presumably Sandes's private secretary.

An erased inscription on the same page seems to indicate that sir 'Edwin Sandes' owned it at Oxford in 1626. The work was printed surreptitiously in 1605, but not again till 1629, when it bore the title 'Europæ Speculum'.
