DescriptionThe notes appear to be expository commentary on each verse of Canticles. The location and date, almost always Northop (or some variation of this spelling), suggest that these are Sparke's notes preparatory to a series of sermons on this epistle delivered on consecutive Sundays. The texts are normally in Hebrew, while the notes are in Latin.
