This volume has the bookplate of W Ashton James, and has a few pages of manuscript additions at the back of the book. The second supplementary volume was published in 1914, and is entitled "Additions and Corrections to the Pedigrees of James of Culgarth, West Auckland and Barrock, and their kinsfolk". It contains 35 pages of text and two folding pedigrees. Bound in at the back of the second supplement is a further pedigree, of the Graham branch of the family, dated 1917. An important and extremely scarce family history monograph.
