I had a visitor to the library the other day with a family Bible, wanting advice on binding repair. It was a nice Bible, late 18th-century, but laid inside (and not known to the owner) was an unrecorded leaflet, in mint condition, from (I think) the early 19th century, offering a special prayer to relieve the people of Kent, England from some terrible disease then afflicting them. You never know what you'll find.
