In 2020, to mark the 2500th anniversary of the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC,
I put together Edward Lear's drawings and paintings of Thermopylae.
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 also now available.
A compendium site of all Lear’s
journeys in “Greek lands” is under construction.
