This catalog accompanies an exhibition that deals with collecting, taste and culture in the nineteenth century. Although many individuals enjoy visiting museums to admire individual objects, few people ever wonder why a particular object was collected. Rarely are collections themselves considered a single entity worthy of study. This examination of the print collection assembled for Robert Gibbes by Charles Fraser, however, reveals the value of utilizing collections to study cultural history.
