  • A letter attached to the album mentions that this was made for the Portuguese governor of India, but this is a late attribution. The document further indicates that the book belonged to the Delaney family who sold it to Sir John Malcolm (1769-1833) from the East India Company. It was then sold to Rowland Jones Esq. (1772-1856), Broom Hall, Carnarvonshire, Wales. The album was then auctioned in an estate sale between Feb. 24 and March 8, 1857 at Carnarvonshire and was purchased by William Stewart Esq. (1798-1874) of Aldenham Abbey, Hertfordshire. Stewart sold the book at Christie's auction in London in 1875. There was probably another owner after Stewart from whom Robert Garrett (1875-1961) purchased the album.
