An overlooked inventory for Blickling Hall, Norfolk

West, Susie (2003). An overlooked inventory for Blickling Hall, Norfolk. Library History, 19(2) pp. 143–145.



Archival sources for the seventeenth-century library of the Hobarts at Blickling are brought into focus through the use of an overlooked post-mortem inventory. The indigenous book collection at Blickling was assembled since the Hobart family bought the estate in 1616. This note focuses on the book room, rather than the collection, using a post-mortem inventory deposited at the National Archives, Kew.
