Overview

One enduring legacy of the close relationship between Britain and Brazil over the course of centuries is the existence in the British Isles of a wealth of archival holdings relating to Brazil. Brazil in British and Irish Archives is the first guide devoted to this rich resource. The Brazil-related manuscript holdings of 79 British and Irish archives, libraries and museums that are described in this expanded and revised second edition of the guide are extremely varied, but together they offer unique insights into 16th- to 20th-century Brazilian history. Although this material is especially important for the understanding of 19th- and early 20th-century British-Brazilian relations, many other historical themes and periods are illuminated. Historians will find Brazil in British and Irish Archives to be an invaluable tool for identifying material that is held by national, local and specialist archival repositories
