Armorial stamp of Sir Henry Cambell (British Armorial Bindings)

A couple of books are known with Cambell's armorial stamp on the bindings, but otherwise nothing is known of his library. His will has no mention of books, leaving his estate to his wife and daughter Mary (d.1709). One of these Cambell armorials, in the NAL, has the bookplate of Sir Godfrey Copley (d.1709), suggesting a dispersal of books not long after Cambell's death.
