Codrington and Codrington/Reade No 151 covers two volumes numbered 151 and 152 in Morley's printed catalogue, and does not clearly distinguish them. Here they are given separate entries as Codrington/Reade Nos 151 (1) and 151 (2). Handwritten notes on the Library copy of Codrington refer to this. Both volumes are in uniform format and bindings and written by the same scribe. Dark brown leather binding with blind-tooling and coloured stamped panels.
