Collado was a Spanish Dominican from Mezzades who arrived in Japan in 1619 and worked as a missionary for three years before arriving in Rome for what turned out to be a thirteen year sojourn before returning to the East, to the Philippines, with two dozen missionaries. In addition to the two works here, Collado also produced a confessional, Modus confitendi et examinandi penitentem iaponensem, also in 1632.
The press of the Sacred Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith was founded in Rome in 1626 and over the following decades produced linguistic works apertaining to the major non-European languages. By 1633 it had already produced Syrian, Ethiopian and Arabic grammars.
