Sweary words!

People that do things like this to historic books make me mad!!

In a previous workplace, it could be frustrating when you found passages of text in Institutional writings / law reports underlined with ink, and notes made in the margins – the courts won’t accept photocopies of defaced texts like that.

But it was hard to argue with the perpetrators, as the ink was from ink wells, and the writing was copperplate…and the original annotator had probably died 150 years before you were born!
