Footnotes

  • John Fryer, elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1697, travelled for ten years throughout India and Persia whilst in the employ of the East India Company. The ownership inscription of "P. Francis, 1792" is probably that of Sir Philip Francis (1740-1818), politician who was appointed to the supreme council in India, where he lived from 1774 to 1781. See illustration overleaf.
