The British Numismatic Society holds Lockett’s own 58 volume manuscript catalogue of his collection. These volumes provide a unique insight into Lockett as a discerning numismatic connoisseur, while documenting provenances of his purchases and his hand-written observations about the coins in his collection.
Each volume covers a specific period or category of his collection. Within each volume there is an individual paper tag inserted for each coin.
In 2022 and 2023 the BNS will create digital surrogates of Lockett’s manuscript catalogue, with the goal of protecting this fragile item for posterity and making this resource freely available online for study by anyone with an interest in numismatics worldwide. The first few sections have now been uploaded and are available to view here courtesy of librarian Brad Shepherd.
