The editor, Johann Potken, was provost of the collegiate church of St Georg in Cologne. His address to the reader states that during his long years in Rome he had learned the Ethiopic language (which he calls Chaldean) from Ethiopic pilgrims to the court of Leo X. While in Rome he had already commissioned an Ethiopic Psalter, with specially cut types, to be printed there by Marcellus Silber in 1513, and the type then passed into the possession of Soter in Cologne. Potken must also have known the 1516 Genoa Polyglot Psalter: the title-border of the Cologne edition is closely modelled on the Genoese one.
