Reading Experience:

Evidence:
[Marginalia]: pp.31-61 are heavily annotated - the only clue to the identity of the annotator is in the ink - it is the colour used by Will. Baillie (see section 1.5). The annotations are in the form of underlinings and marginalia. The marginalia involve detailed comments on the text and and make references to ideas of Sir Joshua Reynolds, therefore dating the comments later in the eighteenth century than the publication date of the book.
