Manuscript copy of A Paraphrase Upon Job by George Sandys; appears to date to the 18th century. However, T.J. Pettigrew, librarian to Augustus Frederick, Duke of Sussex, dated it to the 17th century in his descriptive catalog of 1827. This dating persisted in later descriptions: hence the item's designation as a pre-1650 manuscript.
