This is the first printing of Tottel’s expanded Magna Carta. “The edition of [the Magna Carta] by Tottell in 1556 is the most known; it varies from Pyson’s and Berthelet’s in some readings of the text of the statutes, and it is enlarged by the addition of “certain statutes with other needful things taken out of old copies examined by the rolls,” printed at the end of the first part. Editions by Tottell were also printed in 1576 and 1587. There is reason to conclude that the copy used by Coke in his Second Institute was the[Tottell] edition of 1587.
