A copy of the 1st volume of Gough's edition of Camden's Britannia (Lond. 1789), bound in two parts, with manuscript notes by Gough, and many additional papers and plates, some in manuscript: among which latter are:
- At beg. 'A few slight additions and corrections to Mr Gough's Camden by the Bishop of Cloyne', (Rich. Woodward ?)
- At p. 79. a drawing of a tumulus near Blagdon house, Bristol, 1789
- At p. 160. drawings of Aston Upthorp chapel
- At end. 'Answers to Mr Nichols Queries by Dr Clapperton, M.D.' about Lochmaben: also answers about Closeburn
The succeeding volumes of this series have very few manuscript papers: there are drawings of the Gough or Calthorpe family vault at Edgebaston, and of Kendal castle, 1800.
- Creation: c. 1789
