There are also copies at Bishopsgate Library, Chetham's Library, London Guildhall Library, London School of Economics, Society of Antiquaries of London, University College London and the V&A.

Very good copies of both works in an attractive and well preserved binding which John Porter suggests might be by Riviere.
