In 2024 a folder that contained the pages of the Urbs Camboritum was brought to the Museum of Cambridge by JB, a descendant.

Charles Henry Piper, 5 Emery Street

The folder contains the following note: Most of these “Leaflets” were drawn over a period of about ten years 1895-1905 and presented to me by my Coach William R Bropwn a noted Latin Tutor at that time. I think the original plates of Sketches were produced by Messrs Heffer and Son of Cambridge. William R Brown was a member of Jesus Lane Meeting.
