    I am researching Plumptre House in Nottingham and I am interested in what happened to the library which was eventually transfered to Fredville in c. 1791. Your website illustrates a newspaper cutting THE SALE ROOM, of a sale at Sothebys but it does not give the name of the paper. It also illustrates a Sale Catalogue for Fredville Park. Could you tell me where I could find either of these items? Or could you tell me whether the sale catalogue includes any books. I assume the sale took place in 1926.Does the newspaper cutting have a date, I would like to consult Sothebys but it would help to have a date for the sale. I live in Nottingham and haven’t yet been able to visit Kent Archives. The photos of the Library at Fredville are very interesting!
