Abstract

The de Beer Collection contains manuscripts and printed books, totalling some 8000 volumes. Apart from the Evelyn and Locke publications, there is a large collection of 16th to 18th century travel books to Italy and Rome. These reflect de Beer’s interest in the European ‘Grand Tour’, something that both Evelyn and Locke undertook. De Beer’s enthusiasm for things Italian was infectious. Indeed, it spread to his cousin Charles Brasch, who also had a strong fondness for Italy. Baldassarre Orsini (1732-1810) was an architect and historian of Italian art. Here is an engraving of the surrounds by Tufillo Bridge, opposite the chapter by Orsini describing the old parish church in the district of Santa Maria Intervineas, near Ascoli Piceno, Italy.
