David Swan's "Bibliotheca Swaniana"

The identity of the owner of this collection was a mystery until Scot McKendrick found that one of several 'Bibliotheca Swaniana' manuscripts in the Burney collection at the British Library bears the name David Swan in the same handwriting. They typically have a description of a front flyleaf, parchment flyleaves with horizontal red lines, and tree-calf bindings. All seem to have a date in the early 1790s:
