Format, decoration and binding are very similar to those of Codrington/Reade No 264. Both contain the same work and the same poems in the margins. They differ in small details and may be by different scribes. The miniatures, however, are by two different artists. Limp red leather Indian binding with painted decoration.
Provenance and Acquisition
Presumably gift of Lieut.Col. Carmichael Smyth, registered on 6 June 1842.
