A collection of various books of Menno Simons was printed in 1600 and 1601 at Hoorn in Holland. His works (not complete) were for the first time printed in 1646. The large Folio Edition of Menno Simons' Complete Works was published at Amsterdam in 1681 by H. J. Herrison. In the English language The Complete Works of Menno Simons appeared in 1871 at Elkhart, Indiana, and in 1876-1881 the works were printed at the same place in the German language. (1) A critical edition of Menno's writings is in preparation in Holland.

(1) The repeated assertion that the translators and printers of Menno Simons' Works have changed and perverted certain sentences in his writings and "have given spurious copies of his works to the world" is without any foundation whatever. A comparison with the original editions shows that the sentences in question have been accurately reprinted in the later editions and correctly rendered in the English Works.
