Abstract

The dispersal at auction of the renowned scientific library of the earls of Macclesfield from Shirburn Castle has been held at Sotheby's, London, in the period March 2004 to November 2005 in six sales following upon the sale to the Cambridge University Library of the Macclesfield scientific papers. This paper discusses aspects of the history of the library, its genesis and composition, the personal history of those who created it, and certain individual volumes.
