This would not be the last auction sale of the furniture and fittings from a Turkish bath which failed to live up to expectations.

Camtullicam was probably a mis-spelling of Kamptulicon, an inexpensive floor covering, made of a canvas base covered with a mixture of india-rubber, gutta-percha, and cork.
