The sales in England of the great bibliophile Richard Heber's library took place between 10 April 1834 and 22 February 1837. There were three additional sales on the continent in 1835 abnd 1836. "The English sales brought in £56,774, with those on the continent adding some £10,000, so that the total amount of all the sales came far short of the estimated £100,000 originally paid by Heber..." (Oxford DNB). Most of Heber's manuscripts were bought by the British Museum, the Bodleian Library, and Sir Thomas Phillipps.
