Biography

See AOA Christy Correspondence (File L):
Letter from A W Franks to Sir John Lubbock, 2 March 1873 requesting approval of Christy Trustees to the purchase of the collection of 'the late Mr Lucas' for £140. Franks states that he has been to Bentley Hall and the owner is willing to sell. He recommends that the Christy Collection purchase the stone implements and if necessary the British urns and their contents and hopes that the BM will purchase the miscellaneous antiquities. The letter contains Lubbock's and Hooker's signatures approving the purchase.
