Provenance 1701 - 1900

Time period1701 - 1900
Provenance nameSpencer, George John (1758-1834), 2nd Earl Spencer, 1758 - 1834 British Ambassador to Vienna, Whig Cabinet Minister; see DNB; Contributions Towards a Dictionary of English Book-Collectors [pt III, Oct, 1892, by Michael Kerney]; de Ricci, English Collectors, 72-7; Anthony Lister, `George John, 2nd Earl Spencer and his `Librarian', Thomas Frognall Dibdin', in Bibliophily, ed. Robin Myers and Michael Harris, Publishing History Occasional Series, 2 (1986), 90-120; Clare A. Simmons, `George John Spencer, Second Earl Spencer (1758-1834)', in Nineteenth-century British Book-collectors and Bibliographers, ed. William Baker and Kenneth Womack, DLB 184 (Detroit, Washington DC, and London, 1997), 413-18; Spencer's books included the library of Count Reviczky, q.v., purchased in 1790, and that of the Duca di Cassano, q.v., purchased in 1819/20; some duplicates were sold at his anonymous sale: A Catalogue of the Duplicates of a Nobleman's Library consisting of Rare Editions of the Greek and Latin Classics of the 15th Century &c (London: Leigh and Sotheby, 20 Dec, [1798]; other duplicate sales were held in 1800 (26 May), 1802 (3 Apr.), 1804 (6 June), 1811 (16 May), 1815 (9 May), and 1823 (5 June); Cassano (and other) duplicates were subsequently sold at the following sales: A Catalogue of Rare and Valuable Duplicates from the Library of the Rt. Hon. Earl Spencer, K. G. (London: Evans, 2 Mar. 1821); the Bodleian copy of this catalogue is fully annotated; Catalogue of a Portion of the Library of the Late Duke di Cassano Serra (London: Evans, 18 Dec. 1826): [includes some incunabula purchased by the Bodleian]; Catalogue of a Portion of the Valuable Library of the Rev. Daniel Lysons, The Duke of Cassano (London: Evans: 17 Mar. 1828); some volumes have the coat of arms of Spencer and his countess, Lavinia Bingham (Spencer, impaling Bingham quartered with Turberville), stamped in gilt on both covers, and the motto, `Dieu defend le droit': this is illustrated in Davenport 354-5, but incorrectly described there as being Bingham quartered with Smith; a second stamp (not in Davenport), bearing Spencer's own arms alone, surrounded by the Garter and surmounted by an earl's coronet, is occasionally found (for example, on P-375); accession numbers, from 1 to above 20,000, were inscribed in ink on the verso of the upper cover of the binding or of the front endleaf, in the upper left-hand corner: see de Ricci 77; these numbers are often cancelled and followed by the letter `D' or `d', presumably for 'duplicate'; in some cases a `duplum' symbol was used instead, and seems occasionally to appear on its own, without the accession number; for Spencer books now at John Rylands University Library, Manchester, see Anthony Lister, `The Althorp Library of Second Earl Spencer, now in the John Rylands University Library of Manchester: its Formation and Growth', Bulletin of the John Rylands University Library of Manchester, 71 (1989), 67-86; also P.
