During 2020 Edward Lear's drawings and paintings of Thermopylae will be put together
on a separate page to mark the 2500th anniversary of the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC.
My edition of Edward Lear's Cretan Journal was first published in 1984; a revised third edition was published to coincide with the bicentenary of Lear's birth, in 2012.
For 2012 I also curated a display of Lear's scientific drawings at the Royal Society: Edward Lear and the Scientists: Text and Images
from a Bicentenary Exhibition.
Together with Elizabeth Wells I have prepared a web edition of Edward Lear’s Grecian Travels:
The Journal of a Tour in Attica and Euboea in 1848.
My web editions of Lear's travels in Greece and Albania in 1857
and Lear's Greek journey of 1856: Corfu to Salonica are now available.
A compendium site of all Lear’s
journeys in “Greek lands” is under construction.
