Edward Lear

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.

I am currently working on a web edition of Lear's travels in Greece and Albania in 1857.
