Time, Routes, and Places of Nineteenth-Century Travelers: A Dynamic Interactive Map of Spain as an International Destination

Posted by Eugenia Afinoguenova on February 7, 2012

"Time, Routes, and Places of Nineteenth-Century Travelers" is dedicated to compiling, querying, visualizing, and interpreting the narratives by men and women who traveled to Spain from over ten countries of Europe and the Americas over the course of the “long” nineteenth century (1789-1914). We are mapping the itineraries of these travelers and developing a conceptual map of Spain as nineteenth-century travel destination, as visitors from different countries saw it.

Progetto Sonzogno

Posted by Silvia Valisa on November 13, 2011

This is a rough introduction to my inventory and analysis project for the production of Italian publisher Sonzogno between 1800 and 1943.
The data now available on the site consists of two Outlook Databases. They list the holdings of the Biblioteca Storica Sonzogno as inventoried by two archivists for the Italian publisher RCS, who is the current owner of the Sonzogno catalogue.
