The previous owner: Hailing from the esteemed collection of William Foyle (1883-1963), a titan among 20th-century booksellers. In 1943, he acquired Beeleigh Abbey, a historic medieval monastery, transforming it into a sanctuary for his magnificent personal library. This library boasted an unparalleled collection of manuscripts and volumes spanning English history and literature, as well as European and global historical narratives and explorations. These treasures were nestled within the Abbey's picturesque former monastic dormitory, each proudly bearing a leather bookplate marked W. A. Foyle, Beeleigh Abbey.
