Edible Book Day: ‘Campi Flake-graei’

Today is Edible Book Day! To mark the occasion Julie from the Reading Room team has made this amazing ‘Campi Flake-graei’ cake which is based on an illustration from one of the treasures of our collections, Campi Phlegraei by Sir William Hamilton (rff QE523.V5H3 (SR)).

“Sir William Hamilton was a British Diplomat, Antiquarian, Archaeologist and Volcanologist. Campi Phlegraei. Observations on the volcanos of the two Sicilies as they have been communicated to the Royal Society of London (1776-1779) was the result of years spent observing volcanic activity in the region (known as Campi Phlegraei, meaning ‘fileds of flame’) surrounding Naples. The book includes 54 beautiful plates, which according to the its full title are ‘illuminated from the drawings taken and colour’d after nature’.”
