Reading Experience:

Evidence:
A miscellany of verse, [St John's College, Cambridge, MS S.23] from about 1640, shows evidence of ownership and engagement with text in the form of various marginal annotations and an index of first lines on the endleaf. The name John, John M. or John Nutting is signed at a number of points in the manuscript, alongside poems and in the endpapers, and John Susan appears on the back flyleaf. The two signatures are different, may refer to different owners of the MS, may not be contemporaneous with the entries themselves; it is also possible that John Susan is an earlier signature.
