Ellis Edward to hire Randle Holme's printing equipment, let us bear in mind the fact that Ellis Edward was a plausible rogue, and also that the lure of a printing-press of one's own is extremely strong. Let us remember too that Thomas Jones's standard of printing did not equal his enthusiasm. The rivalry between the two men contin- ued until Thomas Jones's death, and their respective almanacs provided a worthy battleground. More copies of Thomas Jones's Almanacs for the crucial period have survived than of John Jones's for which reason Thomas Jones's indictments have had a greater influence on posterity, possibly to the extent of distorting our judgement of the facts.
