Abstract

Dr Esmond de Beer collected books by John Evelyn (1620-1706), diarist, gardener, and Fellow of the Royal Society. In 1983, de Beer gave to Special Collections his Evelyn Collection of some 1000 works, which included his own meticulously edited The Diary of John Evelyn (1955) and a first English edition of Roland Fréart’s A Parallel of the Antient Architecture with the Modern (1664), which was translated by John Evelyn. In October 2009, a third edition (1723) of this classic work by the French architectural theorist was donated to Special Collections. It arrived somewhat circuitously via a Canterbury bookseller, a Dunedin bookseller, and the Office of the Vice Chancellor. It is in superb condition.
