Seite 250 - A great number of them which purchased those superstitious mansions, reserved of those library books, some to serve their Jakes, some to scour their candlesticks, and some to rub their boots. Some they sold to the grocers and soap sellers, and some they sent over sea to the bookbinders, not in small number, but at times whole ships full, to the wondering of the foreign nations.
