Description
Scope/Content: Manuscript annotations in printed book.
Scope/Content: Manuscript accounts and memoranda written on the blank leaves within a Rider's British Merlin almanac for 1678, largely in a contemporary hand. The contemporary writer records a variety of household accounts and other debts as well as memoranda. There are also other annotations in a later 19th century hand, which are mostly recipes, as well as multiple inscriptions in pencil from the 1800s, where multiple owners do the arithmetic to find how old this volume is (for example, 1814-1678=136). It is possible the original contemporary annotator was from near Sheffield, as Sheffield and Stannington are both mentioned multiple times throughout the text.
Condition: Bound in later calf with blind stamping to covers.
