Thomas Hardy's Studies, Specimens &C. Notebook

Bibliographical Description

THE notebook, measuring 15.6 by 9.6 cm., is bound in stiff boards covered in black leather stamped with a straight-grain morocco pattern within a decorative border. The spine is wrapped in black cloth tape, apparently a repair carried out by Hardy himself. The first leaf of the notebook's first gathering has been pasted down to form the front endpaper, with the second leaf constituting the front free- endpaper; a sheet of orange pink surface paper has been pasted over the front endpaper and the recto of the front free-endpaper. The final leaf of the final gathering has been pasted down to form the rear endpaper.

The notebook comprises five sewn gatherings, the first two of twelve leaves each, the third of fourteen leaves, and the final two again of twelve leaves each. The first gathering is complete, its first and second leaves serving as endpapers; in the second gathering the final leaf has been torn away or become detached; the third gathering is complete; in the fourth gathering the final seven leaves have been cut away; in the fifth gathering all leaves have been cut away except the fifth, sixth, and twelfth (the rear endpaper) and a single leaf has been glued in between the stubs of the first and second leaves. Although the paper of this inserted leaf is consistent with that of the remainder of the notebook, the presence of an erased pencil page number in its upper right-hand corner suggests that it was originally part of another notebook, presumably destroyed by Hardy himself. With this exception the leaves are not foliated.

All leaves are identical in size with the cover of the notebook and ruled with blue lines, nineteen per page at 7.5-mm. intervals. The top margins vary from 14 to 16 mm., the bottom margins from 9.5 to 11.5 mm. The paper, dark cream in colour, has artificially imposed chain lines but no watermarks and varies in thickness from 0.11 to 0.12 mm.
