Private collections from the Treasury

Five private collections are included in the Treasury. They are invaluable. They are (digitally) available for research.

The private collection of a tidy person and devoted traveller, or the rich legacy of a miser. These are only two examples of impressive collections, all of them private collections, containing a wide range of items: personal letters, travel accounts, diaries, publications, lecture notes, maps, drawings and so on. Every collection is a journey of discovery in the life and work of these collectors.
