A good reference for provenance research using library stamps can be found in Provenance research in book history: a handbook, by D Pearson (London, 1994. repr. 1998). [RAR090.16], with specific mention of BM and BL stamps.
A message from Edmund MB King (formerly worked at the BL 1975-2012): "For those who want to know more about the identification of printed books, using their stamps, in the early years of the British Museum, the detailed article by P.R. Harris entitled: "Identification of printed books acquired by the British Museum, 1753-1836, is Appendix I of 'Libraries within the Library; the origin of the British Library's Printed Collections', London: British Library, 2009, pp. 387-428."
