Description
Scope/Content: Manuscript. Covers detached from text block with many loose pages.
Scope/Content: Manuscript version of Edward Manwaring's Stichology, published in 1737. It is unclear whether this is actually a manuscript of Manwaring's, or if it is a copy of the work copied by another, but it appears to contain the central text of the published work with very little alteration. It is written throughout in a neat 18th century hand.
