A fourth edition was printed for Tory by an unknown printer (perhaps Tory) on 8 February 1529 (use of Rome), a small octavo or 16mo, and on 20 October 1531 another octavo also printed by Tory himself (use of Rome).
Perhaps because of this modest output, combined with the fact that it printed small editions in small formats (mostly 8vo and demy-8vo, but also in 12mo, 16mo, and 32mo), the Eragny Press has received minimal scholarly attention over the past century.
