Sir Thomas Phillips of Middle Hill, Cheltenham

In the Guardian online today is a piece on this eccentric English book-collector of the last century, whose collection of manuscripts was a wonder and which is still being sold off even today.  References to manuscripts once in his collection are common in editions.  Most of them are now in Berlin.

    I am interested in finding the whereabouts of the source material for Fairbarnes Book of Crests. Any ideas?

    I certainly hope these manuscripts are well cared for in the future, unlike the whole Ramschmuten fiasco in 89.

    Thanks for this info!
