The Historian’s Guide, or, Britain’s Remembrancer.

Mary Jolliffe’s elegant book label is pasted on the front endpaper, opposite the concocted University of Otago Library’s label marking the gift of Esmond de Beer’s Locke Collection. About 1670, there was a Lady Mary Jolliffe (née Hastings), who married Sir William Jolliffe of Caverswell. This label, however, is far too modern to attribute it to her. It appears to be of the late nineteenth- or early twentieth century vintage. Until there is something definite, this female book collector remains a mystery.
