It is arranged alphabetically by authors, and the anonymous and unbound books, and the tracts, are grouped at the end (fol. 469). At fol. 466 are notes of loans of books 1709-14, some of which were not returned till 1723. The volume was first used as a commonplace book on legal subjects, in the 17th century.
