  • -  "嘉靖戊午南京十三道監察御史重刊."
  • -  明羅洪先撰。此本雕印極精,折葉裝訂,凡一百一十七疊葉。卷末題:「嘉靖戊午南京十三道監察御史重刊」。按戊午為嘉靖三十七年(1558),從萬曆間錢岱翻刻本所載胡松、徐九臯兩序,知胡氏始刻是書於浙,時為嘉靖四十年(1561),則此本前於胡本者凡三年。然胡氏自序稱日本及琉球兩圖,為其所補入,今此本亦有琉球圖及日本圖,則亦為出於胡松校訂之本矣。此題云:「南京十三道監察御史重刊」,似此本之前,尚有一刻本,書闕有間,今不可攷矣。又以此本與錢本相較,知錢本之《華夷總圖》,即此本之《四夷圖》,是其圖不始於錢岱。此本又有《內三關邊圖》,不見錢本,亦不見於嘉靖四十年胡松自序。又桂萼、許論之說,為韓君恩所竄入,說見君恩自序。而錢本每圖後有「敘」,此本無之,未審亦為韓氏所加否也?朱思本(序)延祐七年(1320),自序.
