Catalogue Note

Hans Syz, et. al, in Catalogue of The Hanz Syz Collection, Washington D.C., 1979, Vol. 1, p. 514, note that Hans Gottlieb, a student of Ignaz Bottengruber, was a member of the Silesian Nobility [his son Gottleib Wilhelm, born in 1743, was elevated to the title of Graf in 1781], and for the last eleven years of his life was the Mayor of Breslau.
