GEMMS: Gateway to Early Modern Manuscript Sermons
TitleBooks of sermons inscribed by Jacob Badger
ShelfmarkAdd MS 85464
Creation Date1668 - 1676
RepositoryBritish Library
Contents NoteAlong with BL Add MS 85465, this is one of two volumes of sermon notebooks owned by Jacob Badger in 1668 and 1676. This volume (Vol. 1) was also inscribed by William Drinkwater in 1668.
Material FeaturesThe preacher's notes have occasional additions and corrections but no marginal annotations. The handwriting is very close together but reasonably legible. The middle of the volume (ff. 70-84) is badly damaged and almost impossible to read, so those sermons have not been included here. The notes in this section might be on additional sermons on Psalms 68:19.
