This may be of peripheral interest to you. I was not aware of this work or controversy until recently. Nova Solyma (1648) was translated from Latin into English in 1902 by Walter Begley. In his translation he made a case for ascribing it to Milton. Samuel Gott was later identified as the author.
Full catalog reference and links to complete Begley translations at Hati Trust:
"Nova Solyma, the ideal city; or, Jerusalem regained; an anonymous romance written in the time of Charles I., now first drawn from obscurity, and attributed to the illustrious John Milton. With introduction, translation, literary essays and a bibliography by the Rev. Walter Begley."
