Annotations:"Notes on flyleaf, possibly in Hooke's hand," noted by Mandelbrote.
Other notes:Mandelbrote notes no clear evidence of, but possible, Hooke provenance. He also suggests that this book could be one of other tracts in lot 438, p. 17 of the auction catalogue; see auct_BH_788.
The manuscript note on the flyleaf appears to contain cross-references to other books; e.g. 'Kepler', 'K.Eph.', and 'Nunc Sid.', the latter most likely referring to Galileo Galilei, Sidereus nuncius (London, 1653).
