In an old Latin book I find this signature:
Andrew Hillyer Ejus Liber A D 1700 and frose to death.
The Latin students were fond of writing " Ejus Liber," but the line which gives the date is the only one of the kind I have seen. Frequently the names were accompanied by verses such as:
From a Dwight's Geography, 1802.
If this book should chance to roam Box its ears and send it home.
