The edition is the 1572 one.
HULOET, Richard (fl.1552). Huloets Dictionarie, newelye corrected ...  
and enlarged by John Higgins. London: Thomas Marsh, 1572]
The notes seem to indicate Huloet was already dead by the time this  
edition appeared.

All I know is that in 1572 this is what appeared in print in this  

I don't think we can complain to compiler in this case.
