      1. This work (1748 ed.) has an additional title-page: Artachthos: or a new book declaring the assize or weight of bread. Stark, p. 14, spells assize as 'assise'.
      2. Stark, p. 14, loc. cit., says that the 1748 edition contained a plate, but the British Library copy, which the present compiler inspected, had no plates; which could mean that any plate or plates have been removed.
      3. The 1765 edition has a slight alteration in the title, and a frontispiece has been added.
