Jeremy is undertaking an AHRC collaborative PhD with the British Library and Royal Holloway University of London on Maps and the Italian Grand Tour.

Published date:

King George III’s Topographical Collection is a truly amazing collection in the British Library

Key points

  • Jeremy is using the King’s Topographical Collection to explore tourism and the movement of people on the Italian ‘Grand Tour’ during the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries
  • His research treats maps as both scientific and artistic objects, analysing their impact in shaping travellers’ geographical imaginations of Italy and conceptions of the Classical past
  • This project will help to re-catalogue the Italian section of the King’s Topographical Collection, opening up these rich resources for future researchers
