Bookplate Dacre of Glanton, Hugh Trevor-Roper, historian, name in pencil to ffep. The publisher's preface: 'The following selection is made from MSS. which begin in the year 1736 - 7, and ending the year 1741 - 2. I can, with great truth, aver, that the MSS. fell into my hands by mere accident: But an anonymous editor has no right to hope that the public should give implicit credit to his assertions. Should any reader entertain any doubts as to the authenticity of this selection, the editor cannot remove them, unless by an appeal to internal evidence ; for there are insuperable obstacles to the depositing of the originals, either in a public library or with a bookseller'.
