Footnotes

  • LOGGAN'S "GREAT WORK" IN A SUMPTUOUS RESTORATION BINDING. The workshop which produced this distinctive binding has not been identified, although some of the tools are redolent of those used by other well-know binders of the period.

    "David Loggan's great work, including forty large, accurate, and interesting illustrations of Oxford, intended partly as a companion volume to Anthony Wood's Historia et Antiquitates" (Madan). Loggan's largest work, it was produced at Oxford where he held the position of engraver to the university, but despite the Sheldonian imprint, it is thought to have been printed in Loggan's own house in Holywell.

    Provenance: Charles Finch, 4th Earl of Winchilsea, 4th Viscount Maidstone, 2nd Baron FitzHerbert of Eastwell (1672–1712), bookplate dated 1704 (the year he was appointed Lord Lieutenant and Custos Rotulorum of Kent), and family armorial device mounted on fly-leaf; private UK collection.
