Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
John Bellingham Inglis (1780-1870) was a prominent scholar book collector in the 19th century European book trade. This is a collection of his transcriptions and translations of various classical and early modern works in nineteen bound volumes.
John Bellingham Inglis (1780-1870) was born in London, the son of a British entrepreneur. His father was a partner in the firm of Inglis, Ellice and Co., and held the positions of Director and Chairman of the East India Company. After his father died, succumbing to financial bankruptcy in the market, Inglis retired from his independent venture in the wine trade and relied upon the remnants of his father’s depleted wealth to live in retirement at his residence in St. John’s Wood, and later, Hampstead Heath. Inglis died at 13 Albion Road, N.W. in the winter of 1870.
