Friends of the Grand Tour Dalmatia Project: announcements and donations

We are particularly pleased that the conference organised as part of this project entitled “Discovering Dalmatia. Dalmatia in 18th and 19th travelogues, pictures and photographs”, to be held in Split from May 21 to May 23 has been announced in the distinguished British journal Minerva.  The announcement of the conference can be seen here.

Member of the academic committee and a participant in our previous conference (Diocletian’s Palace in the works of Adam, Clérisseau and Cassas), Professor John A. Pinto of Princeton University, has delighted us with a wonderful gift: an original edition of the monumental work of the British architect T. G. Jackson: “Dalmatia, the Quarnero and Istria, with Cettigne in Montenegro and the Island of Grado”, published in Oxford in 1887 in three volumes.
