TitleGeneral Research files: Italy
DescriptionThis series includes research material relating to every aspect of the Grand Tour, and Italian life more generally in the 18th century. It appears to have been compiled primarily by Brinsley Ford in order to provide contextual background information for his unpublished text 'Aspects of the Grand Tour'. It was probably consulted by John Ingamells for the same purpose during the compilation of the 'Dictionary of British and Irish travellers in Italy'.

The material in this series includes:

-notes from original sources and publications
-references to original sources and publications
-photocopies of original sources and publications
-publications and offprints
-research correspondence

The files are arranged into the following subject groups:

-behaviour and custom
-places visited (cities and locations)
-arts and art patronage
