Lowth’s bookcase

Just to show what a wonderful source ECCO is: it includes the first edition of Sheridan’s pronouncing dictionary. This book was published in 1780 and evidently by subscription, for the front matter includes a list of subscribers, including the Bishop of London, i.e. Lowth! However, the book is not listed in his Will, so I wonder what would have happened to it.
