Photographs of the Cesnola Collection of Cyprus Antiquities, 1900
Scope and Contents
A collection of loose photographs, mounted on card, measuring approximately 210 x 160 mm. The prints are uncaptioned although notations regarding the style of pieces have been added in pencil. Some attempt has been made to assign the pieces photographed to a particular style, but it should be emphasised that these attributions are those of a layman and make no claim to exactitude. Plates 33-43, mainly photographs of vases, have not been identified, although probably easily recognisable to a specialist.
Conditions Governing Access
Unless restrictions apply, the collection is open for consultation by researchers using the Manuscripts Reading Room at Cambridge University Library. For further details on conditions governing access please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Information about opening hours and obtaining a Cambridge University Library reader's ticket is available from the Library's website (www.lib.cam.ac.uk).
