 Rerum Moscoviticarum Commentarii
Rerum Moscoviticarum Commentarii (1549) (literally Notes on Muscovite Affairs) was a book in Latin by Baron Sigismund von Herberstein on the geography, history and customs of Muscovy (the 16th century Russian state).
Marshall Poe, who has written extensively on Herberstein and Russian history generally (see http://www.people.fas.harvard.edu/~mpoe/) uses the English title Notes on the Muscovites consistently, but appears to be the only one to use this translation of the Latin title Rerum Moscoviticarum Commentarii.
the main source of information on Rerum Moscoviticarum Commentarii and Herberstein is Marshall Poe's publications at http://www.people.fas.harvard.edu/~mpoe/, particularly Herberstein and Origin of the European Image of Muscovite Government, which cites many other contemporary publications such as Giorgio, Fabri and Campense.

 Muscovy
As West European economic growth accelerated during the Industrial Revolution, which had begun in the second half of the eighteenth century, Russia began to lag ever farther behind, creating new problems for the empire as a great power.
Muscovy remained a fairly unknown society in western Europe until Baron Sigismund von Herberstein published his Rerum Moscoviticarum Commentarii (literally Notes on Muscovite Affairs) in 1549.
This provided a comprehensive view of what had been a rarely visited and poorly reported state.

 Clinton Goveas :: Wikipedia Reference
The spelling tzar with 'z' is also very common, and represents an alternative transliteration of the first letter ц, derived from German.
The early spelling czar originated with the Austrian diplomat Baron Sigismund von Herberstein, whose Rerum Moscoviticarum Commentarii (1549), 'Notes on Muscovite Affairs', was the main source of knowledge of Russia in early modern western Europe, while not found in any of the Slavic languages.
In contrast to the Latin word "imperator", the Byzantine Greek term basileus had both political and Biblical connotations.

A member of the nobility, he spoke eight languages, including Slavonian, which allowed him to communicate directly with his Muscovite interlocutors (this was indeed an exception, since hardly any travelers spoke Russian).
After a second mission, he spent twenty years working on his account before it was first published in Vienna in 1549 under the title Rerum Moscoviticarum Commentarii.
Whereas previous authors had praised certain aspects of Muscovy and its inhabitants (the honesty and beauty of the people, the fortitude of its soldiers, who can withstand cold and hunger), Herberstein is more critical than his predecessors, as a whole, due perhaps to his ties to the Polish-Lithuanian aristocracy.
