This well-used copy of the seventh edition of Bishop Jeremy Taylor’s The Rule and Exercises of Holy Living contains multiple women’s names as well as several men’s. Written on the first front flyleaf is “Penelope Stores book,” while the half-title is inscribed “Deborah Storre hir Booke” and also includes the inscription of Penelope Lowcocke. Toward the bottom of the half-title is the name Margit [sic] Store.  The book may have originated with William Lowcocke, who has signed the title page and included the price “4s” in the upper right corner.
