According to A. Tauber and I. Sonne the printing of this edition commenced in Riva de Trento in 1562, however production was interrupted and eventually removed to Venice for completion. There, a new title-page was issued noting Venice as place of publication athough non-uniform fonts completed the volume (viz. ff. 5-44 and 49-64). See Kiryat Sepher vol. VI pp. 455-56 and vol. VII pp. 168-69
