- Acquisition notes
- This registration was given to all bricks in the British Museum's collection which had BM numbers but no identifiable registration, except for those lately registered in the 75-7-25 collection. Almost all of them will have been acquired in the 19th century, since the numbers in the series BM 90000-90825 seem to have been allocated in the late 1890s.
