Comment on 17.1.-14.2.1797

Gottlob Friedrich Krebel (1729-1793) published accounts of journeys to several European destinations in several impressions in the second half of the 1700s.
Thorvaldsen may have brought along with him 2 volumes of Die vornehmsten Europäischen Reisen, wie solche durch Deutschland, die Schweitz, die Niederlande, England, Portugall, Spanien, Frankreich, Italien, Dännemark, Schweden, Ungarn, Polen, Preussen und Russland anzustellen sind, Hamburg 1792-96.
However, these books by Krebel are not in Thorvaldsen’s book collection today; they were sold at the auction of his belongings 5.10.1849 at Thorvaldsens Museum, cat. no 774-776.
