Carlyle, Thomas: The Letters and Speeches of Oliver Cromwell. London: Methuen and Co., 1904. 3 vols., 8vo., pp. lxii, 523; xii, 557; xiii, 604. Title pages in red and black.

The inscription notes that this set was a gift to Ms Lucas from the scholar and founder of Liberal Judaism Claude Montefiore (1858–1938), though we do not believe the handwriting to be his. His sister Alice married into the Lucas family, so Sybil was perhaps a relative of hers. Ref: 41708
