Immediate Source of Acquisition

On May 11, 1915, the executors of Mr. Thomas Watson Jackson, fellow of Worcester college and for twenty years (1894-1914) Curator of the Bodleian Library, who died Nov. 7, 1914, presented to the Library a number of note-books by Mr. Jackson relating to pictures at Oxford and elsewhere (MSS.

The gift included, in addition to the volumes described below, a catalogue and a subject-index of Douce prints (mounted series), an alphabetical subject-index to Thomas Dodd's catalogue of Douce prints, a list of pictures which have at any time belonged to the Bodleian Library or the Ashmolean Museum, and several note-books relating to pictures in the Bodleian Picture-gallery and to their restoration in 1903-4. MSS. Top. Oxon. d. 148-149 were transferred to the Library by Mr. C. F. Bell on Aug. 22.
