Antiquarianism and Archeology: Publications of the Society of Dilettanti
The exhibit illustrates the growth of Dilettantism from self-indulgent pastime of the rich to a founding element of the scientific and historical study of antiquity. The books included in the exhibit reflect the character of both an emergent archeology and the social and cultural atmosphere which surrounded it.
