Edward Dodwell. Views in Greece. London, 1830.

Edward Dodwell (1776/7–1832) made two journeys to Greece, one in company with Sir William Gell touring the Ionian Islands and the Troad. Later with the Italian Simone Pomardi, while a prisoner of the French, he toured mainland Greece and revisited the Ionian Islands.The 30 drawings in this volume were chosen from over 400 made by Dodwell, and 600 by Pomardi.. The charm of the work is made all the more evident by its wonderful hand-colouring (unusually, the colourists are credited).
