The manuscript annotations are mostly cross-references to other books on the topic of sunspots; for instance 'Borb.Sid.' for Jean Tarde's Borbonia Sidera (Paris, 1620); 'Rosa' for Christoph Scheiner's Rosa ursina (Bracciano, 1630), 'K.Eph.' probably for Johannes Kepler's Ephemeridum (Zagan, 1630) and 'Ricc.' perhaps for Giovanni Battista Riccioli's Almagestum novum (Bologna, 1651), although it is more difficult to interpret what 'my Ptol.' may be referring to; see auct_BH_772, auct_BH_211, auct_BH_846, auct_BH_62.
