Tony Brothers: Travellers and Texts
In March 1998 the Classical Association held its Annual Conference at Lampeter. Mr Anthony James Brothers, Assistant Lecturer, Lecturer and Senior Lecturer in Classics 1964-2003, a great champion of the library's special collections, took advantage of the opportunity offered by the event to mount an exhibition of some of its many treasures.
The exhibition consisted of two equal parts: the first, of works produced by travellers to Greece, Rome and the Levant in the seventeenth, eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, while the second consisted mainly of texts of Greek and Latin authors. The exhibition catalogue is reproduced here in memory of Tony (1938-2011).
