Margin.
 
In all our ancient English books, the commentary is printed in the margin. Hence Shakespeare:   1
       
“His face’s own margent did quote such amazes.”
       
Love’s Labour’s Lost, ii. 1.
        “I knew you must be edified by the margent.”—Hamlet, v. 2.
       
“She … could pick no meaning …
Writ in the glassy margents of such books.”
       
Shakespeare: Rape of Lucrece, stanza 15.
