Souvenirs

Archaelogist, travel writer and from 1716 tutor to the family of Count Andreas Gottlieb von Berstorff, Keyssler is best known for his Neueste Reisen durch Deutschland, Böhmen, Ungarn, die Schweiz, Italien und Lothringen (Hannover, 1740-1741).

Mozart Relevance

Leopold Mozart apparently owned, or at least had access to, a copy of Keyssler's Neueste Reisen, which he consulted in preparation for his travels in Italy.
