ExI copy: This copy was extensively annotated by at least one early reader -- the hand varies, but judging by the trimming of the notes by the binder's knife, almost all must predate 1615 -- but although they appear on nearly every page of the Eusebius, the margins of the Bede are entirely blank after the first three leaves.
ExI copy: Early seventeenth-century blind-tooled pigskin, stamped on front with the arms of Benediktinerkloster St. Stephan at Würzburg and the motto: En tria distinctis clypeis insignia aspectas Quae gestant abbas regula cenobium. Arms are blocked in black with the date 1615 below. In blind, surrounding the arms, are borders of portrait and vine rolls. Back cover has central panel containing a saint's portrait surrounded by the same rolls, two fore-edge clasps (initialled 'WS'), edges blue, top compartment of spine titled in ink, a label removed from second-from-bottom compartment.
ExI copy: Ownership inscription of the library of the Benediktinerkloster St. Stephan at Würzburg, bookplate of Peter John Bruff and another armorial bookplate (signed 'Austin'), plus ownership inscription of the Revd Richard Wilson of Otley (1857) and a bibliographical note to front endpapers.
