  • How to
    request
A copy of the New Testament in Greek (12mo, without title, but a London edition by Robert Whittaker, not of 1622 or 1633, so probably of about 1640), doubly interleaved, with very many English notes in manuscript stated to be by the rev. Isaac Gosset chaplain at Windsor (d. 1855): presented by his son the rev. Isaac Henry Gosset, vicar of Northam, Devon.

It seems probable from the writing that some of the notes are by dr. Isaac Gosset, the biblical scholar, grandfather of the donor (d. 1812).
