An astronomer and experimenter in several fields, Richard Towneley assembled a valuable library, which was integrated into the already substantial library collected by his brothers (Tony Kitto, “The Towneley family library” in The Book Collector 59, 2010, pp.399-416). An inventory taken around the time of Richard’s death in 1707 lists 1979 books (John Rylands University Library, English MS375). The present volume is entered in that inventory as “Whetstone of Witt", with the shelfmark R.50.
