Bibliotheca Askeviana, sive Catalogus librorum rarissimorum Antonii Askew, M.D. quorum auctio fiet apud S. Baker & G. Leigh....

London: S. Baker & G. Leigh, 1775.

The auction catalogue of the celebrated library formed by the physician and classical scholar Askew, third owner of the famous gold-headed cane. Askew attempted to secure a complete series of all the Greek classics ever published; he purchased  Richard Mead's Greek manuscripts, the papers of Dr. Taylor and some fine early classical codices from the library of the Maffei family." Among the principal purchasers of Askew's books were William Hunter, the British Museum, and the kings of England and France. Digital facsimile from the Hathi Trust at this link.
