Possibilities for Identification: 
Note in pencil in Folger 152-539q identifies owner as Jane Allington. It seems possible from the bookplate of James Everard Arundell, 9th Baron Arundell of Wardour (1717-56) that this stamp belonged to a member of the Arundell family. From the date of the books it is unlikely that it was the 9th Baron himself. He was the eldest son of James Everard Arundell (d. 1803), 3rd son of Henry 6th Baron Arundell of Wardour (1694-1646), and Anne daughter of John Wyndham of The Close, Salisbury and of Norrington in Wiltshire.
