Introductory essay

An inscription is in the form of a poem requesting that the book should not be lent out. It is transcribed on a subsequent (fly-leaf):

'If thou art borrowed by a friend
Right Weclome shall he be
To read and study not to lend
But to return to me.
Not that imparted knowledge [spent]
Diminish learning's store
But books I find if often lent
Return to me no more.
