Ashburnham Appendix and other catalogues

In response to the post about the Ashburnham-Libri manuscripts catalogue, one reader asked me about catalogues of the other Ashburnham manuscripts. The catalogues privately printed by Ashburnham himself are still not all available online, but each is represented online by at least one copy of the relevant auction catalogue.

Catalogue of the Portion of the Famous Collection of Manuscripts, the Property of the Rt. Hon. the Earl of Ashburnham, Known as the Barrois Collection ... Which Will be Sold by Auction ... Sotheby, Wilkinson, and Hodge ... 10th day of June, 1901, and Four Following Days: 
There are also various related publications, notably:

Léopold Delisle, Observations sur l'origine de plusieurs manuscrits de la collection de M. Barrois (Paris, 1866)
Léopold Delisle, Les manuscrits du comte d'Ashburnham: rapport au ministre de l'instruction publique et des beaux-arts, suivi d'observations sur les plus anciens manuscrits du fonds Libri et sur plusieurs manuscrits du fond Barrois (Paris, 1883)
Léopold Delisle, Catalogue des manuscrits des fonds Libri et Barrois (Paris, 1888)
