Fleming Collection


735 Portraits in set

The print collection and library of Dr William Fleming of Rowton Grange in Cheshire includes approximately 15,000 engravings and more than 150 volumes. Fleming began collecting books and portrait prints in 1814 and drew upon his extensive print collection to extra-illustrate many of the published works in his library. The most substantial of these sets is Fleming's Granger which comprises a collection of approximately 11,000 prints arranged and interfiled to illustrate a disbound copy of Rev. James Granger A Biographical History of England from Egbert the Great to the Revolution (1st edition 1769) and Noble's Continuation (1806) which extends Granger to 1727.
