      World chronicle from the Creation to the end of the 14th century, first published in 1484. The second part includes the text of the Epistola Rabbi Samuelis, a widely disseminated medieval anti-Judaic tract, supposedly written originally in Arabic by a Moroccan apostate Jew but more likely the work of its ostensible Latin translator, the 14th-century Spanish Dominican Alfonso Buenhombre.
