The same hand has written "The Bibliopole shall dress up the Sparkler's Volume in the most courtly array. page 167" on the 2nd fly-leaf. There are notes in pencil underneath both of these inscriptions. Written in ink (same hand) on the title page is "S. Shipton". Also written in ink and on the rear 2nd fly is "Sothebys K+x".
