"From the statement in the preface that this collection 'comprises the main part of the library of that famous secretary, William Cecil, Lord Burleigh', it has generally been assumed that this is a catalogue of his library exclusively; the collection in fact was owned by Robert Bruce, 1st Earl of Ailesbury, who had inherited the mss. and possibly some of the printed books through his wife, Lady Diana Grey, Lord Burghley's great-great-granddaughter"--NUC pre-1956 imprints.
"Catalogues are distributed at 6 d. per catalogue at Mr. Willis ... Mr. Holford ... Mr. Sam. Lownds ... [and 7 others]."
