The work was dedicated to Marcantonio Morosini, Venetian ambassador to the Duke of Burgundy: the dedication letter precedes the text (a2r-a3r). Its text is an invaluable source of first-hand information, and was heavily used by Marcantonio Sabellico and Marin Sanuto for their works on the history of Venice. It was republished in Latin in 1594, following an Italian translation printed in 1570.
The edition is also the first to survive among the twelve produced by Bernhard Maler (Pictor), Erhard Ratdolt and Peter Löslein between 1476 and 1478.
