3pp., 4to. On bifolium of watermarked laid paper. With additional slip of paper listing around twenty titles loosely inserted. In fair condition, on aged and worn paper. The first page is headed: 'Inventory of Mr De Coetlogon's Books.' Beneath the main heading is a list of 25 titles, with the subheading '1st. Shelf Drawing Room Right hand Corner of fire Place.' The second page continues with two more columns of similar books. The third page, also in two columns, is headed 'Shelf of Books. - left hand of fire-place'. Written in a hurried style and apparently incomplete, as the list ends one-third of the way down the second column on the third page, with the heading 'Out of Bed Room 1st. floor', and no books to follow. The works are largely of a devotional nature, the items on the slip of paper being representative: 'Doctor Gile on the Old Testament 7 Volumes | Modern History 3 Volumes | Holy Bible 1 Volume | Rapins History of England 1 Vol | Tacitus 1 Vol | Halls Works 1 Vol | Pauls Annotation 2 Vol | Calmet Dicon 3 Vol | Fox Book of Martyrs 3 Vol | Hacrell sermons 1 Vol | Wilso Dictiony 1 Vol | Turn Over | Taylors life of Christ 1 vol | Works of Mr Lewis | Smiths Dictiony 1 Vol | Synapsis Scripture 3 Vol | The New Birth of C 1 Vol | Council of Trent 1 Vol | Gods Man 1 Vol | the Works of Jackson 1 Vol | Events on the Old & New Testaments 1 Vol'. A title on the third page establishes the earliest date: 'Almanach 1800. 1. Vol.' Present on the first page is 'Coetlogon's Sermons Lock [i.e. Lock Hospital] - 1. Vol:' From the papers of the Harington baronets of Ridlington.
