Hester Thrale's 'family book'

 I am aware that The Family Book is held in the Library in Harvard University. Have you any idea of its size, ie dimensions, number of page etc?Michael James

The best I have found is a reference to ...

The little brown calf volume of 187 pages, which traveled for years with Mrs. Thrale from Town to Country1.

It seems reasonable to deduce from this that it was modestly sized.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this question.
I used to attend Sandridgebury School during the early 1950's
one of the pupils there was called Jeremy Thrale. I believe he lived on the road from Wheathampsted to Coleman Green, where lived. is this the right arm of the Thrale family??
