@siobhanleachman :- the TC has previously had projects on his other fieldbooks. The dates and letters/numbers in the margins have previously been transcribed as [[margin]] text [[/margin]]. As they are notations about areas, collections etc they're quite important to the future of linking up with the entomology collections.
