Muir Hunter Museum of Bankruptcy: New Item: Montagu on Bacon and Bacon's Collected works
As noted earlier in the week the Muir Hunter Museum of Bankruptcy collection has recently been augmented with a fine copy of Basil Montagu's work on Fermented liquors. Another new arrival has now been catalogued into the collection. We have now aquired the magnificent 17 volume set of Sir Francis Bacon's works edited by Basil. Basil edited and published this work between 1826 and 1835. He did this whilst working as a bankruptcy barrister and being engaged in the reform of the insolvency laws. Here is the citation to the latest aquisition:
