DescriptionThe folios are divided vertically by squiggly lines, with notes cramped into the different page segments. The notes in the different segments are written in various orientations (portrait and landscape), suggesting that the folio was fully rotated to maximize writing space. The overall effect is rather chaotic.

Other NoteAs this commonplace book contains materials written by both of the Ussher brothers, it is difficult to tell whether Ambrose or James was the scribe/preacher/auditor. To reflect this ambiguity, they both have been included in this entry under the designation of "manuscript owner."
