The meagre notice of London in the Domesday-book would seem to imply that some separate account of this capital was taken, and afterwards lost; and Strype's Stow, vol. i. speaks of a Domesday in Saxon, being a register sometime kept in , of the laws of London and of the Portgreves.

In the earliest account of London that is any wise particular, and now extant, is intituled, , which was published entire by Stow in , as an appendix to his Survey of London. Strype afterwards corrected it in his edition of Stow's Survey, from a manuscript in the city archives. Hearne re-published it, with observations and notes, at the end of the volume of Leland's Itinerary, from a more correct manuscript on vellum in the Bodleian library. It was again published in the , by Mr. Sparke, from a fine manuscript of his own, collated with in the Cottonian library. And lastly, the rev. Mr. Pegge, F. S.

sheriffs are continued, the arms of the mayors and companies given, and some scattered statutes, acts, oaths, &c. inserted.

The edition, and so greatly enlarged as to become almost a new work, but with much confusion in the arrangement, was published by John Strype, another native of London, who is spoken of by Mr. Gough as being as industrious as Stow himself, in his particular department, in volumes folio, with the following title: Lond. .
