The first edition of the De Republica appeared in 1583. It was printed by Henry Middleton for Gregory Seton. The second followed in the next year. It is nearly, though not quite, identical with the earlier, the differences, except in the marginalia (see Introd. pp. xliii?xlv), being almost exclusively mere variants in spelling. Even these variations are to some extent explainable when we notice that in the later edition the compositor has made freer use than his predecessor of certain composite double-O's and double-E's, and that this has led him to "full out" his lines with occasional unnecessary mute E's. Thus an earlier "stretes...stretes" has become in 1584 "streets .. .streetes." The third edition comes in 1589. The Latin title is now for the first time Englished. The title-page runs as follows. "The Common-Welth of England, and Maner of Government thereof. Compiled by the honorable Sir Thomas Smith, Knight, Doctor of both lawes, and one of the principal Secretaries unto two most worthie Princes, King Edward and Queen Elizabeth: with new additions of the cheefe Courts in England, the offices thereof, and their severall functions, by the sayd Author: Never before published. At London. Imprinted by John Windet for Gregorie Seton, and are to be solde at his shoppe under Aldersgate. 1589." The title-page of the fourth is similar (though "Common- Wealth" has advanced a step nearer its modern spelling). "At London. Printed by Valentine Simmes, for Gregorie Seton, and are to be solde at his shoppe under Aldersgate. 1594." These two editions omit the table of contents and make some slight alterations in the marginalia; e.g. the sharp rebuke at the end of the note to III. 8.?"Litleton seene in the tongues as Sir Thomas Smith was in Litleton "?is dropped. The ..".
