The Paul Mellon Library

The Paul Mellon Library contains a collection of more than 2,000 books dedicated to sporting art and sports history. The collection also includes extensive archive material. The Ackermann Photographic Archive contains a large collection of photographs documenting all the works that were traded by this auction house between 1957 and 1991. In addition, the Trust has been donated two research archives; one belonging to Stella Walker and the other to Charles Lane. These archives have been compiled by the two authors and contain their personal research and records about British sporting art. In addition, these research archives include newspaper cuttings, photographs and printed articles.
