Η Revue Britannique και η ελληνική θεματογραφία της (1825-1901)
Revue Britannique and its Greek material
Δεν διατίθεται περίληψη.
The Benaki Museum library has recently acquired a series of 324 photocopied items from the celebrated French periodical Revue Britannique, which circulated in Paris between 1825 and 1901. These are independent articles and brief reports on matters of general interest relating to Greece, its history and its culture, from antiquity until the 19th century. The significance of this material, collected in photocopied form after research in Swiss libraries, lies in the fact that the magazine is not to be found in any library in Greece —apart from an incomplete set in the National Library. The material has been catalogued and arranged in chronological order; Indexes by name and subject have been prepared for use by future researchers The texts give special emphasis to travel writing and impressions by visitors to Greece and its wider area, antiquities, everyday life, manners and customs, religion and the Greek legal and educational systems, with extensive use of statistical information. This study ends with a general history of Revue Britannique, which was first published at the outbreak of the philhellenic movement in Europe and for many years played a major role in the French press, always taking an interest in issues related to Greece
