Sir Hans Sloane's Catalogues of his Library and Manuscripts

2020

Abstract

The files in this dataset are derived from microfilm copies of the original library catalogue of Sir Hans Sloane, now presented across 9 volumes, Sloane MS 3972 C 1-8, and the name index to the Sloane library catalogue, Sloane MS 3972 D. The catalogues are crucial for understanding the development of Sloane's collections, the present-day collections of the British Library, British Museum and Natural History Museum, and to identifying collection items which are now dispersed across a number of institutions.
