TitleSources: Thomas Hollis' Diary, Memoirs & Letters
DescriptionThomas Hollis (1720-1774) was an English political philosopher and author. In 1748–9 he toured Europe with Thomas Brand (later Brand Hollis) and again during 1750–53, largely on his own, meeting many leading French philosophers and several Italian painters. He was an ardent member of the Society of Arts. His diaries and correspondence (held in a private Collection and Harvard University respectively) were consulted by Constable in the course of his research for the Wilson publication.
