Beautifully collected and exceptionally detailed with engravings, this two-volume set of archaeologist Edward Dodwell's travels took place both from the perspective as a traveller in the early period and then as a prisoner-of-war (French) during the later tour, scouring ruins, artifacts, & architecture while Greece was then part of the Ottoman Empire.
