Cuno and the Encyclopedic Museum

Next week I am due to be lecturing on the Encyclopedic Museum in Cambridge. I am grateful to Lee Rosenbaum of Culturegrrl for her comments on James Cuno's Davos discussion on the subject. Many Encyclopedic Museums have returned large numbers of antiquities since the Declaration on the Universal Museum.

I think that we are going to have a good debate in Cambridge.
