"Apparently similar to SABIN 1636 but three years earlier in date, and without the attribution to "a Midshipman on board the Centurion". Often attributed to "John Philips" which may have been a pseudonym, since that name is not listed on the Centurion's muster roll; Sabin attributed authorship to Richard Walter.
