Feature Note
Author attributions

Frequent. Author attributions mostly written across from the title on the right side of the page, sometimes (increasingly towards the end of the manuscript) at the end of the item. 


Seemingly red cardboard, but in fact a worn, thin morocco; green spine with gilded tooling. 

Decorations - printed

Numerous newspaper clippings. 


Primarily single, though a few others at intervals.

Indications of use

p. 40 annotation explaining literary reference.

Sequence of (five) prose items p. 25, then pp. 28–33.

p. 23 scribbled-out title, with the full item subsequently copied on p. 28, presumably because of concerns about space, or for the sake of including it in the prose sequence.

Item formatting

Line between items.

Uniform presentation of titles (not underlined).

Original poetry

Yes, at least the poem on p. 14, first line "Says Grenville, 'to our Church at home'"... n.b. a later original prose sermon by Lord Grenville.

Page layout

Liberal use of paper/ space eg. p. 36: where another stanza could easily fit at the bottom of the page, the compiler chose to continue the poem on the proceeding page instead.
