Notes
  • Only the first part (p. 1-30) known as the Detectio, is now considered Buchanan's.
  • The Actio contra Mariam Scotorum reginam (p. 31-100) and the translation of the Literæ reginæ Scot. ad comitem Bothuelium scriptæ (p. 101-121) are supposed to be the work of Thomas Wilson.
  • Appended are two poems: In Mariam reginam scoticam, signed: G.M.; In Mariam Stuartam reginam scoticam, satyra, signed: P.R. Scotus.
  • An English translation printed the same year (by J. Day?) has title: Ane detectioun of the duinges of Marie quene of Scottes.
  • Signatures: A-Q⁴.
  • Verso of leaf Q4 blank.
