The upper wrap is annotated with what appears to be the MS issue list for some sort of primitive "Subscription Library". Starting on 5th November 1797 a list of twenty-four names is appended, each member seemingly allowed the item for four days. Names include the Reverends Sumner, Corrie and Simson, the Honorable and Reverend Finch, Sir R. Newdigate and Aldermen Simson & Howlett. A curiosity.
