From the foreword to the first part of the sale: "The richness of the collection and the fastidiousness with which it has been assembled were both made possible by the quality of the material which became available during the period of the great Britwell, Leconfield and Lothian dispersals. .Dealing with a comparatively short period of time during which Europeans reached almost every corner of the globe, the collection demonstrates in particular the impact of all this activity on Tudor and early Stuart England. At first it was by means of translations from the Spanish, Portuguese and Italian, and secondhand reports, sometimes incredulous; but many of the important English contributions to the subject, which are present here, show how very quickly the commercial and political implications were realised, and how the seizing of the initiative, consolidation, and finally colonization laid the foundation of the greatest empire since classical times.
