Custodial History

Ingham Foster died in 1782, and the sale of his collections took place in the following year. It cannot however be regarded as certain that these volumes came as one lot, though they probably all belonged to Mr. Foster.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

These volumes appear to correspond to the following entry in a Bodleian bill of messrs. Prince and Cooke, booksellers of Oxford, paid in October 1786, 'Forster's M.St Catalogue of Coins--£5 5s.'
