This copy is of particular interest on account of the family financial records (17th century) of the Harbords who originally owned the manuscript and which are to be found in the front and back of the volume. These records give values of commodities, rents, land holdings, wages of servants, labourers, etc. Also because the Harbords lived near Stratford-on-Avon and because one of the receipts is to a William Shakespeare, it is remotely possible that this was the copy Shakespeare used when writing Henry VIII. There is also a receipt to a John Milton
