Weiss 2013 proporciona bibliografía al día sobre las glosas y las describe:
“Designed to establish Mena's status as a vernacular auctor and the young Núñez's intellectual credentials. Supplies auctoritates (with copious quotations) for cosmography, myth, history, natural and moral philosophy. Identifies Mena's imitation of the classics and this intellectual sources (e.g., Anselm and Isidore, whose errors are corrected by reference to new humanist authorities, notably Greek). Occasional rhetorical and numerous linguistic notes (especially etymologies). substantian and influential textual criticism. The revised edition [Granada, 1505 (manid 4590)] suppresses the Latin quotations, the autobiographical preface, and the rudimentary access. Some textual changes in Zaragoza: Coci, 1506 [manid 5436], which are probably not authorial.
Steelsio's edition (Antwerp, 1552 [manid 5441]) is much abbreviated.
Plundered (often without acknowledgment) by El Brocense, whose 1582 [manid 5439] annotations aimed to provide a more explanatory apparatus."
