The present catalogue obviously draws on a wide range of primary and secondary references (for the most commonly cited material, see Bibliography)
Here, links to other entries on the pre-Felton collection are assembled, under two main headings:
Informative and explanatory texts
The extended entries listed below provide additional information and discussion of particular aspects of the pre-Felton collection, either
- commenting in more detail on catalogued material, for instance a complete annotated list of the remarkable group of engravings donated by George Collins Levey in 1879: see Levey Gift (1879); or
- elaborating on material not catalogued in full here: see e.g. Plaster Casts.
The following linked entries provide reproductions of some of the more informative early photographs and prints documenting the exhibition spaces of the pre-Felton collection, including views reproduced in the 1905 NGV catalogue. Of course there is a wealth of other material of this kind, much of it accessible via the SLV catalogue, and other examples are reproduced in individual entries elsewhere in the present catalogue
