Three fourths of the book is devoted to the pre-Mosaic period, one fifth to the Mosaic period and only three pages to later history. The original ed. appeared in Naples, 1552, with title: Dissertatio de Libro recti. In 1750 the London printer Thomas Ilive issued an English translation of the work, asserting that he had published the real "Book of Yashar" mentioned in the Bible.
