Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Purchased by the current owner's father in the 1960s from Bristol Baptist College, which was selling off its library at the time. The present lot apparently once formed part of the collection of a certain Dr. Gifford, who worked for the British Museum and upon his death presumably presented his collection of books to the College.
