Appleby 1997 schreibt über diesen Handschuh: «The Duke (of Richmond) gave Sloane another byssus glove in the collection, from Minorca (formerly) Port Mahon, captured in 1708 by General James Stanhope); the two previous entries – pearls from the Pinna, and ‚The Byssus from that pinna‘ – indicate that all three items originally belonged to Martin Lister.»
