At the British Library, you may spot the red stamp of MUSEUM BRITANNICUM on some older accessions. This copy of The Works of Cicero amused me, as the two mythological creatures of the title page seem to have turned their head from the obtrusive stamp in disgust!
(And it's a drawing completed in situ, as there's no photography allowed in BL. And I was good and respected that!)
Trying to source some sets of items in the archive, and this quote (including what's in the brackets) has happened in an email chain about searching the database:
"... they may also (amusingly) not be logged as sets, but be in there under a catchall name omitting to say they are sets, and whatever date.
*High five to all you archivists out there, I expect you are currently having your own wry smile in agreement at this! *
