In reference to Professor Rubinstein’s query about the differences between the 1577 edition and 1587 editions of Holinshed’s Chronicles, the latter being the one considered as used by Shakespeare: The Holinshed Project at Oxford would be the place to begin: They have a wonderful site with both editions available for reading and comparing side-by-side. They have also developed a tool to help in comparing the two editions.
