Manuscripts from the collection of Edward Daniel Clarke (1769-1822), including "the Clarke Plato".

Edward Daniel Clarke (1769–1822) was an antiquary, mineralogist, and active traveler. His manuscripts, collected during his travels, were purchased by the University of Oxford in 1809. Information on the provenance of the manuscripts was published in 1826, based on information from Clarke himself, and is summarized in Bodleian Quarterly Record v (1926-8), p. 53.
