Feature Note
Author attributions

Judging by the digitised images, frequent. Most if not all Hannah More poems are attributed, and they make up most of the collection. 

Indications of use

Record of a literary circle/coterie. 

Item formatting

Occasional swirl or line between items, but in general, items are seemingly back-to-back. 

Original poetry

Presumably yes, from Hannah More's circle. 

Page layout


Conservative use of space (all pages fully filled).
