Presentation copies, from Wilkins to Earl Eldon, who was Lord Chancellor, with his round book label to the reverse of the front endpaper in each volume. "Wilkins, George (1785-1865), Church of England clergyman ... The first Earl Manvers presented him to two Nottinghamshire vicarages: Laxton, on 1 December 1813, and Lowdham, on 19 January 1815. On 8 November 1817 the second earl presented him to the important parish of St Mary's, Nottingham; he continued to hold Lowdham in plurality until 1839. In 1823 he was collated by the archbishop of York to the prebendal stall of Normanton in Southwell collegiate church. Lord Eldon presented him to the rectory of Wing in 1827, mainly on the strength of his book Body and Soul (1822), though its publication provoked some controversy, especially with Revd J. H. Browne, archdeacon of Ely. An earlier publication, The History of the Destruction of Jerusalem as Connected with the Scripture Prophecies, appeared in 1816" (ODNB). He later became Archdeacon of Nottingham. All these works are uncommon, the first mentioned is found on COPAC in the BL, Oxford, Glasgow and Durham; the first work in the second volume is found at Glasgow only and the other works in this volume are not on COPAC and the third volume is found at Oxford and Nottingham only
