|Shelf-mark:||Sp Coll BD7-f.17 (see main library entry for this item)|
|Note:||“By an error of imposition, e6b is occupied by the text of f5b, where it is also printed and from the same setting up. The mistake was discovered after the printing of the outer forme of quire e, and is corrected by a note printed at the foot of e6a ...” - BMC. In the Glasgow copy the error is further highlighted by an elaborate bracket drawn in pen-and-ink in the outer margin of e6v to which has been added the word “vacat”.|
