Local note Bail RB copy is extra-illustrated with about 573 engraved portraits and has been bound in 5 volumes. It is inscribed: ""Miss Caroline Juliet Satchell, from her grand-uncle, Joseph N. Ireland." It is quarter bound in red morocco with marbled boards and endpapers; the binder's title is "George the Third". It forms part of the G.F. Pendlebury Collection, purchased by the Ivy M. Pendlebury Bequest in memory of Gerard Frederic Pendlebury. The binding matches that of a set of: Memoirs of Her most excellent Majesty Sophia-Charlotte, Queen of Great Britain : from authentic documents / by John Watkins. London : Henry Colburn, 1819. A note signed Caroline J. Satchell in vol. 1 explains that both works were grangerized by Ireland, who "had an agent in Liverpool who collected portraits for him for years. Many of them are ingeniously inserted into pages of the correct size."
A list of the extra-illustrations [in Ireland's hand?] (ca. 102 p.) has been bound in at the end of v. 5.
Orde Poynton compiled a manuscript card listing of the extra-illustrations [housed at Baill ER 54E, under title: Index to engraved portraits]
