This newly updated fifth edition has enhanced and improved the information from the previous editions.
An informative resource for those interested in the Hertford family history and how the Wallace Collection was formed, The Founders is an historical account providing brief memoirs of five generations of collectors of The Wallace Collection. The Collection was principally formed by the 4th Marquess of Hertford within the period 1840-70. But added to the nucleus he acquired are other items provided by his forbears, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Marquesses, and by his illegitimate son who became Sir Richard Wallace.
