This extraordinarily comprehensive collection of just under six hundred medals has been assembled over the past quarter century or so by Christopher Foley FSA., director for the last forty years of the old-established dealer in early English paintings, Lane Fine Art Limited. Encouraged by the egregious advice of Richard Falkiner FSA, he soon developed a large collection of early British medals. Collections as broad as this can never be said to be 'complete' but as a personal collection, amassed in a systematic and scholarly way, it has perhaps never been equalled and certainly never surpassed in more than a hundred years.
