Taylor's collecting activities are described in his entry in the Oxford DNB. His collection was sold by his widow in 1912 for the massive sum of £358,500.3pp., folio. Bifolium. In very good condition, on lightly-aged paper. Tastefully-printed billhead, as one might expect, in black and red, with royal crests, boasting that the firm are 'Printsellers by Appointment to her Majesty, | Their Royal Highnesses The Prince Consort, The Prince of Wales, and the Duchess of Kent'. Also the text: 'Established 1760. | Half price allowed for packing cases if returned immediately'. The bill begins with four items under the date 22 November 1889, totalling £45 16s 6d. These are followed by the 42 lots, under the heading 'Percy Sale' and the date 24 April 1890. These were purchased for £959, on which the firm charge 5% commission (£47 19s 0d). The most expensive lots are: '521 Girton T. On the Thames near Blackfriars' at £71 8s 0d, '244 Constable J. Hampstead Heath & a sketch on the reverse' at £61 19s 0d, and '526 Glover J.
