Shelfmark W/I-6-8/12
Robert Boyle. Works. 1744.
Pencil note of purchase on front pastedown: £6.1.6 23rd Jan. 1743..
The inscription appears to be a record of purchase.
This work does not appear in the 1743 printed catalogue, probably because the date should be interpreted as 23 January 1744 as the official year still started on 25 March until the calendar reform of 1752.
