NoteArmorial bookplate of [Thomas?] Bateman of Middleton Hall (by Youlgrave) in the County of Derby; bought with money from the Rustat Fund at the Bateman sale at Sotheby's, May 1893. A cutting from a sale catalogue is pasted to the front pastedown, presumably from the Bateman sale. On an inserted leaf at the front is a record of a legal squabble, in an eighteenth-century hand, concerning the family of FrancÌ§ois Auderget of Cormeunbeuf. With a memorandum from J. & J. Leighton to Francis Jenkinson, about the incompleteness of the volume: 'We beg to say the 'Belial' was sold as stated, with '55 leaves', which always implies that a book is doubtful or imperfect & is not returnable. We thought you knew it wanted some leaves'. Also with correspondence from Kurt Ohly to J. C. T. Oates (dated 1957-1959) concerning the book.
Binding noteFifteenth-century soft white leather, rebacked; lower board lined with a fragment of a fifteenth-century legal manuscript (a treatise on grammar).
Decoration Notethe woodcuts coloured in a contemporary hand. With some very early (sixteenth-century?) signatures in manuscript to the lower right corner of some rectos.
CertaintyThe recording of this evidence is considered certain
