This is extraordinary. This book belonged to the Jesuit missionary. The meticulous handwriting in the margins is by Topcliffe - the man who was torturing him. Topcliffe had his own rack at home. He must have read and racked by turns.

It's in the amazing library at Ushaw which also houses first editions of On The Origin of Species and a lamp that was bent in the Lisbon earthquake!
