An album containing 80 portrait drawings by Hans Holbein had also been part of Arundel's collection. It had previously been in Charles I's collection but had been exchanged by him for a single painting by Raphael, and the return of the drawings into royal ownership was celebrated in 1675: ‘The Book has long been a Wanderer, but is now most happily fallen into the King's Collection’.
