The work, or at least the first part, appeared in Paris (but printed in London by William Dugard) in 1649 in Latin, Elenchus motuum nuperorum in Anglia. The English version, A Compendious Narrative of the Late Troubles in England, was published in London in 1652. This Italian translation from the Latin original is dedicated to Giovanni Pesaro (1589 - 1658), the 103rd Doge of Venice.The work was also published in Bologna the same year, with a different vignette on the title-page.F. F. Madan, in his "A Bibliography of George Bate's Elenchus Motuum Nuperorum in Anglia" (The Library [1951], no. 9) records the above imprint but not the one for Bologna, which would appear to be the sheets of the Turrini Press, with a cancel title-page. This Italian translation from the Turrini press, is uncommon, with OCLC locating only two copies, Bibliotheque Nationale de France and Newberry Library [Attributes: Signed Copy]
