Where was shelfmark 1427 between 1604 (when Oxford died) and 1925 (when Henry Clay Folger purchased it)?
We do not know. Presumably it was somewhere in Leicestershire during the early 20th century, since Folger’s bookseller was from that county. It has been suggested that it may have been deacquisitioned around 1925 from Kenilworth castle. Although this is a plausible scenario, at this time it cannot be supported with any known tangible evidence.
- There has been discussion that the contractor will have to close South Oxford at North Decatur for a period of time. What are the plans to deal with traffic circulation during this phase?
- There is one officer included (and there will soon be another) who died before he reached Gallipoli. How can he be classed as a Gallipoli casualty?
- Isn’t it true that the annotations of shelfmark 1427 were made before Oxford purchased it?
