"The most important single purchase the King ever made was in 1762, when he acquired the collection of Joseph Smith, the former British Consul in Venice, at a cost of £ 20,000. [...] In the same year, the King acquired another major collection of Italian drawings, principally of the seventeenth century, when he purchased from Cardinal Albani, through the mediation of the architect James Adam, three hundred volumes collected by Pope Clement XI."
