There is not much archival information about Henry Hill. There are no household accounts that list the collection, there are no letters (that we know of) to or from Hill that would provide an insight into his life or thoughts. There is therefore, no physical archive about Captain Henry Hill and his collection.

Most of what is written on these web pages is constructed from a few primary sources and a few secondary resources. I have added on these pages transcriptions of some newspaper cuttings and some information about two publications that help in understanding Hill’s collection.

Some other key sources are:

Ronald Pickvance, Henry Hill: An Untypical Victorian Collector Apollo The Magazine of the Arts. Dec. 1962 Ed. Denys Sutton

A.M Reynold’s biography of her father Frank Holl, published in 1912
