Cholmondeley, The Heber Letters, 1783-1832 (London, 1950); Arnold Hunt, `Bibliotheca Heberiana', in Antiquaries, Book Collectors and the Circles of Learning, ed. Robin Myers and Michael Harris (Winchester, 1996), 83-112; Clare A. Simmons, `Richard Heber (1774-1833)', in Nineteenth-century British Book-collectors and Bibliographers, ed.

Robin Myers, Michael Harris, and Giles Mandelbrote (New Castle, Del., and London, 2001), 143-71; Bibliotheca Heberiana: Catalogue of the Library of the Late Richard Heber... (London: Sotheby & Son, 10 Apr., 5 June, 10 Nov, 1834; Evans, 8 Dec. 1834; B. Wheatley, 19 Jan., Evans, 23 Mar., 25 May 1835; Evans, 29 Feb., Sotheby & Son, 11 Apr., 30 May, B. Wheatley, 1 July 1836; B. Wheatley, 22 Feb. 1837); Catalogue d'une belle collection de livres et manuscrits ayant fait partie de la bibliothèque de feu M. Richard Heber (Ghent: Ch. Citerne, 26 Oct. 1835); the Bodleian copy of the Heber catalogues contains annotations in red ink of the prices paid by Heber for many items; a note signed by H[enry] E[llis] states that they, as well as the prices in black, are based on the copy of the catalogue of Payne and Foss, `presented by Mr H Foss to the Library of the British Museum in 1851'; although Ellis maintains that the entries in red are derived from notes in the books concerned, this does not always seem to be the case; Thomas Rodd's bills to the Bodleian for the sale are kept at Library Bills (1837-8), no. 7.
NotePurchased by Richard Heber (1773-1833); stamp and manuscript note on the recto of the front endleaf: 'Apr. 1819 [Celottis] sale by Sotheby £1. 6. 0'; perhaps the item listed in Catalogue, 7 (1835), lot 6759, sold for £0. 1. 0.
