I think this raises a good question about what should or should not be ignored.  In my own record I included the “abc..”  but I have seen books with all kinds or random scribbles and markings – where does one draw the line?






[I admit to not seeing the annotations on p. 9 – because I wasn’t looking through the digital image thoroughly enough – I would have seen it in real life!]

Here my example for record 3. I decided to ignore the “abc…” inscription on the paste-down and the inscription in pencil mentioning the author and title on the title page but I have included the annotations on p. 9.
