Dealer Notes
With the bookplate of William John Home Mylne, presumed to be a descendant of Robert Mylne, engineer, who was involved in the works: Robert married Mary Home, so it is likely that William was Robert’s grandson. Most items can only be positively identified as being held by the British Library and at most one other institution.
