While the ESTC does not list an auction catalogue by Millington close to Hooke's date of purchase, the anonymous A Catalogue of English, French, Italian, Dutch and Spanish books in all volumes . . . will be sold by auction . . . on 6th of November, 1689, lists an undated Basel edition of a 'Vitruvii Architectura Germanicè' as lot 37 in 'Italici Folio cum diversis Libris Figurarum in omnibus Voluminibus & Linguis Gall. Ital. Germ. Belg. & Angl. descript.' on page 16, making it possible that this auction was in fact associated with Millington. This catalogue (ESTC citation no. R171066) is available online via the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Yale University.
