Abstract:
Manuscript on paper of a commonplace book. The work contains four sections. (1) "Loci animadvertendi in legendi epistolis, ad quos etia[m] om[n]ia quae annotaderis referenda sunt." This lists types of epistles under eight headings, or "libri," but the extensive framework is very incompletely annotated. (2) "Here are written divers notes phrases words & sentences collected out of severall bokes. 15 Novembr 1586. A[nn]o Reg.ie Eliz. 28." This is actually a seventeen-page selection from the "A Touchstone for the Time" section of George Whetstone's A Mirrour for Magistrates.... (London, 1584). It is preceded by a two-line entry quoting Mary Queen of Scots as saying at Fotheringay, "I come not as a criminal." (3) "Epistolae commendatiae Praecepta," summarizing extracts from the Epistolae of Paulus Manutius. (4) "Quaedam collecta ex liber The Breviarie of Health, compiled by Andrew Boorde." Eight pages of various entries in English from Boorde's work, including descriptions of and remedies for "scurffe," greensickness, "sikness of the prisones, "chappe," and nosebleed.
