Author Anonymous Editor
Title CONCORDANTIAE BIBLIORUM id est, Dictiones Omnes quae in Vulgata Editione Latina Librorum Veteris et Novi Testamenti leguntur, ordine digestae, et ita distinctae, ut Maximae et absolutissimae (quas offert haec Editio) Concordantiae dici possint. Opus Sacrarum literarum studiosis, non minus utile quam necessarium. Nunc tandem post omnes, quae hactenus prodierunt editiones, a multis mendis repurgatum, necessariis distinctionibus illustratum, vocum multarum numero locupletatum, aliisque subsidiis ornatum, quae subiecta ad Theologiae studiosos admonitio demonstrat.

In the Preface, the anonymous editor credits the Frankfurt printers Marnius and Aubrius for this project: "viri pij, de literis & literatis iam-pridem optime meriti, quum de Latinis Concordantiis excudendis suscepissent consilium, & nostram opellam ea in re petissent, hunc ordinem sequi visum est". He dates the Preface Nonis Februariis, anno primo seculi Millesimi sexcentesimi [1600] and cites six previous Concordances 1555-1584 on which this work is based. The printers Johann Aubry (d.1601) & Claude de Marne (d.1610) were sons-in-law of Andreas Wechel and his heirs in the business. Another copy of this book was owned by Francis Bacon (1561-1626) who recorded the price he paid, 13s 4d (Book Auction Records 1909).
