The final leaf is blank. This 'Society' seems to have been a marketing device invented by Septimus Prowett, who had 'the entire management of the publishing department.' The list leads with a detailed account of John Martin's work-in-progress on his mezzotint illustrations for Milton's Paradise Lost which Prowett published to great acclaim the following year.

Copy Notes Formerly folded and sealed, the verso of the final leaf being addressed in ink to J. Soane Esq / 13 Lincolns Inn Fields. Bound in a collection of sale catalogues.
