Hilda Henry was clearly an amateur, but she took her work seriously and signed herself "Hilda E. Henry. Binder". She has also signed the title page in ink, with the date 1915. There are two labels, recording that the volume was presented by Miss H. Henry to Cheltenham Ladies' College, where it was once kept in a locked case (M19).
