If you had the good fortune to visit the recent Royal Academy exhibition ‘Charles I - King and Collector’, you might enjoy this book by Jerry Brotton; ‘The Sale of the King’s Goods’ which was shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize in 2006. —— “A detailed and fascinating account of the creation and subsequent dispersal of the art collection of Charles I, sold off in a very complicated process after his execution (and then largely reconstituted during the Restoration period).”. (JBD1’s review on Librarything.com) —— “Jerry Brotton is Professor of Renaissance Studies at Queen Mary University of London. He is a regular broadcaster and critic as well the author of Renaissance Bazaar: From the Silk Road to Michelangelo, The Sale of the Late King's Goods: Charles I and his Art Collection (shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction and the Hessell-Tiltman History Prize) and the bestselling and award-winning A History of the World in Twelve Maps, which has been translated into twelve languages. He lives in London and Oxford”.
"#lindseyhouse was originally built by #inigojones for the #earloflindsey, who was General of the King's forces for #charlesi, and fell at the #battleofedgehill. A fine masterpiece of the period is still to be seen in part of the chambers."-- #bradshaws#illustratedhandbook#londonanditsenvirons The original Inigo Jones' staircase is still here. See photos. There is also a hidden wall safe as well. This building is now a law office and a secretary showed me these things very nicely as she had 5 minutes and was happy I came by to see them.
