Inscription or legends present

Inscription present: This ink inscription has created an offset on page 1 of the sketchbook, where the page has darkened from cream to a pale brownish-red with the exception of an area along the spine and the parts of the paper which were touching the ink: the address can be distinctly read in reverse in the unchanged paper colour. Graphite notes on the same page have not had this effect.
