Notes on prophetic works
SL248 was bought at the Sotheby sale by 'Maxwell' (i.e. Lymington) for £26. On 9 September 1936 Sotheby's told Yahuda that Lymington would sell lots 248, 264 (now Yahuda Var. 1 Ms. 19) and 267 (now Yahuda Var. 1 Ms. 20) for a total of £60. Apparently 8 ff. of the original lot were transferred to Yahuda Var. 1 Ms. 1.
