Feature Note

Likely once a stitched notebook. This book is now completely dismantled into separate pages, though a couple remain attached to one another.



Indications of use

Numerous corrections and annotations, not a fair copy. 

Item formatting

Double rules between items.

Original poetry

Seems likely to contain a large amount of original poetry given the corrections and the subject (sonnets addressed to particular women). 

Page layout

No pagination.

The volume contains a partial list of titles, which includes several not featured in the collection.
