Mondays at the V&A

This week I was continuing my work on the book covered in green parchment – as yet I have not found a proper title for this book, just a library mark and a small amount of blurb at the beginning of the book stating what it contains – I think this must be where the library have got the name from – Prints by Four Artists.

I have come across some interesting quips today, by what must have been the owner or the collaborator of the book – there a two blank pages where there were once prints, the first being roughly removed and leaving damaged paper behind. The pages have been left blank and annotated as in the pictures:

"Observe by this the absurdity of lending Boyes such a Book"

"Taken out - What a Pity..."

Quite entertaining!

And finally some more pictures of dirty pages that have come up clean!
