Paterson's Roads was first published in 1771 and went through eighteen editions. Paterson himself had apparently ceased to be involved in the compilation of new editions of this work by 1785, but his name continued to be attached to later editions as in indicator of reliability. Soane also owned the eleventh edition, 1796 (q.v.). Pages [1--190] numbered in columns 1--380. ESTC t93564.

Copy Notes Annotated in ink and pencil on recto of first front free-endpaper with notes in Soane's hand outlining the route between Cricket Lodge and Aynho, giving mileages and also the names of some inns; also on first rear endpaper on the routes between Cheltenham and Coventry and Worcester and Coventry, with mileages and some page references. Inscribed in ink on verso of first rear free-endpaper with a note on Coleshill- Swan dated Aug. 1818. The second front free-endpaper is annotated on both sides in pencil in Mrs Soane's hand with twenty-one lines giving names of towns and inns between Cheltenham and Uxbridge and between Tewkesbury and Cheltenham with comments upon them, i.e. Oxford -King's Arms - dirty & uncivil/ Angel - better, but not well; the same notes are inscribed in ink in Soane's hand on the facing leaf, dated 2-4 September 1813.
