VMs: The curious quire hand mark on f57v...?
While compiling a list of the quire marks a couple of days ago, I noticed
once again the odd mark at the bottom on f57v, which would appear to be in
the same slapdash hand as the quire marks (which I guess is John Dee's).
Has anyone made any tentative connections between this mark and any other
sign (whether marginalia or not) in any of the books thought to have been
in Dee's library?
Cheers, .....Nick Pelling.....
PS: cool post on Tolkien, BTW. :-) I wouldn't be at all surprised if the
VMS turned out to have been an inspiration for him. :-)
