Notes: The second Colines edition of this Epitome (first, 1531), and a very rare book: Renouard located only 1 copy (Besançon), and WorldCat records only 1 - John Rylands; SUDOC adds Lille, but doesn't give Besançon. Colines re-issued the text in, 1536, 1539 and 1542. Copies of the 1531 and 1536 editions in the Schreiber collection. The Mancunian Sir William Watkin, 1st Baronet (1819–1901), railway entrepreneur, and MP, received a knighthood for his service in the British cause in Canada in 1868.
