- The catalog contains four numbered lists of books (in groups of fourteen, twenty-eight, twelve, and four--presumably in shelflist order) in the library at Williamscot House, Oxfordshire, England.
- Formerly part of an 18th-century library in Williamscote House near Banbury, Oxfordshire, England, assembled by John Loveday (1711-1789), philologist and antiquary, who lived at Caversham in Oxfordshire. The library was moved to Williamscote House in 1799 by John Loveday the second (1742-1809), Doctor of Laws.
- In Rare Books and Manuscripts, University Libraries, Pennsylvania State University, University Park, Pa. (#RBM 9557/Box 01/Vault GG)
Williamscote scholar Sarah Markham believes that the executors of John Loveday (1785-1864) commissioned Richard Hoblyn to make the catalogue. The handwriting in a personal letter from Hoblyn differs markedly from this catalogue; presumably the final catalogue was copied by an amanuensis.
