Library Receipt Book 1772-1776. (UYLY207-2)

Borrowings of multivolume editions that do not state a number of volumes are taken as indicating all volumes (e.g. the entirety of a three-volume novel) unless this seems unreasonable, as in the case of extensive editions such as periodicals. 

Unless there is clear evidence to the contrary, ditto marks have been interpreted in the conventional sense as referring to the above entry.

Start year: 1772. End year: 1776. Type: Student. This register contains 184 pages, 198 distinct borrowers and 1194 distinct book holdings.
