Ironically, the 16 vols. of the collection now housed in Oxford include the drawings of the most prestigious French tombs. Contents: The Revolution & the Royal Tombs of France; The Gaignieres Drawings & the Restoration of the Royal Tombs of France; The Oxford Collection of Gaignieres Drawings & the Tracings of the BN; Kerrich’s Drawings & Engravings of French Monuments; & The Disappearance of the Oxford Collection of Gaignieres Drawings from the French Royal Library.
