Ownership
"The respected bookseller William Salloch who sold the collection to the university thought that the collection was started by Anglican Archbishop Thomas Tenison (1636-1715), who founded the first public library in London. After Tenison sold the books and manuscripts belonging to this library in 1861, the collection came into the possession of the manuscript collector Sir Thomas Phillipps. Compilation of the collection may in actuality have been done by the London bookseller John Bagford (1650-1716)"--Celebrating research.
