"This sale is in two parts, with a separate catalogue for the third day of the sale. At the end of the second day there is a note that states, "For Third Day's Sale, comprising the Museum of a Gentleman, deceased, see a separate Catalogue"; It is assumed that Lord James Manners is the seller for only the first two days and the third day is an anonymous deceased "Gentleman." ... The third day is a separate catalogue but the pagination continues from the first two days (starting on page 15)."--Getty provenance index databases.
