Footnotes

  • Colin Paul's interest in the Anson narratives spanned a period of over fifty years, starting with the his purchase from Maggs in 1961 of Barrow's biography of Anson, and leading eventually to his publishing for the first time Lawrence Millechamp's contemporary account, the present lot including all five copies that were printed.

    Excerpts from the account had been published in 1967 by Glyndwr Williams, but here Colin Paul publishes the text in its entirety as well as Millechamp's charming watercolours (mostly ornithological) from the manuscript which is held by the National Maritime Museum. Signed copies of classic works by Williams and Rear Admiral C.H. Layman are also included.
