  • Engraved t.p. by Landells after a design by Delamotte
  • Engraved port. by G. Madeley
  • Sold by George Robins, the auctioneer. The sale was advertised to occupy twenty-four days, from April 25th to May 21st. The catalogue was badly compiled, and so much dissatisfaction was expressed at the intention of selling some of the collections en masse, that the contents of the seventh and eighth days' sale, which consisted of prints, drawings and illustrated books, were withdrawn, recatalogued, and disposed of at a sale at Robins's rooms at Covent Garden, which lasted from the 13th to the 23rd of June. The amount realized at the sale at Strawberry Hill was 29,612 pounds, and that in London, 3,837 pounds. The library, consisting of books, manuscripts, prints, etc., sold for about 7,740 pounds. Cf. Fletcher, English book collectors, p. 214
