Ex Libris of the Earls of Macclesfield's "South Library" of the Shirburn Castle from 1860 on the back of the front cover
"Many books with this bookplate have been on the market in recent years because they all trace back to the library of the Earls of Macclesfield, the first portion of which was auctioned in 2004 and continued to 12 parts in all, the last being in 2008."
