Oxford Collection of the Drawings of Roger de Gaignieres and the Royal Tombs of Saint-Denis: Transactions, American Philosophical Society (Vol. 78, Pa

Elizabeth A. R. Brown

In the late 17th and early 18th cent., Francois-Roger de Gaignieres (FRG) amassed an impressive collection of drawings of the tombs and other monuments of France. That collection is today divided between the Bodleian Lib. in Oxford and the Bibliotheque Nationale (BN) in Paris. Ironically, the 16 vol. of the collection now housed in Oxford include the drawings of the most prestigious French tombs. Contents: The Revolution and the Royal Tombs of France; The FRG Drawings and the Restoration of the Royal Tombs of France; The Oxford Collection of FRG Drawings and the Tracings of the BN; Kerrich's Drawings and Engravings of French Monuments; and The Disappearance of the Oxford Collection of FRG's Drawings from the French Royal Library. Illustrations.
