The Robert Wood diaries.


A brief listing of the contents of The Robert Wood Diaries and accompanying material were presented by descendants of Robert Wood (1716-71) to the Library of the Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies in 1926. The Donation comprises twenty-eight items, one of which is now missing. The main part consists of diaries and sketches from a tour of the Levant in 1750-51 made by Wood and three companions (the archaeologists James Dawkins (1722-57) and John Bouverie (c1722-50), who died on the tour, and the Italian draughtsman Giovanni Battista Borra (1712-86)).
