Some books with Henry Coape's bookplate would have come from
the Linley Wood library
after having been inherited by Elizabeth
Caldwell and her sister Hanah Stamford.
Many of the Linley Wood library books were distributed among family
members in 1913 but the majority were dispersed in 1949 when Capt
CH Heath-Caldwell sold the Linley Wood estate. At this
time some of the more valuable books were sent for auction at
Sothebys however the majority were sold at the auction of the
contents of the house which was held at Linley Wood. I have
over the years been able to buy back a number of these books which
have come up for sale on the internet. If you have any books
with this bookplate I would be very pleased to hear from you (
