Neither Ames nor Herbert has drawn the necessary distinction between Stow's Summary and Stow's Summary Abridged, although these are entirely different works, the latter being always half the size of the former. Stow's Summaries are here described as octavos, but they are as often called duodecimos, and in order to mark the diminutive size of the Summaries Abridged they are here entered as 24mos. Herbert, p. 853, has noticed the confusion in the sizes, without suspecting the reason for it.-Note in Mr. H. Pyne's Catalogue. The Abridgement of the English Chronicles... Augmented. by E. H. Gentleman Imprinted at London for the Company of Stationers, 1618. 8°, chiefly black letter, A-Qq in eights, first and last leaves blank. Dedicated by Howes to Sir George Bolles Knight.

It has been said that Stubbes brought out two editions this year, a statement not unlikely in itself, especially as 1583 had exhausted two; but the fact seems to be that, as the title of the 1584 copy lately discovered bears the month as well as the year, and the colophon the year only, the inspection by two different persons of two copies, one deficient of the beginning, the other of the end, might have favoured the growth of such a notion.
