Contemporary scribal copy in several hands of this travel account. Tommaso del Bene left Florence with his suite on 21 July 1695 and returned on 7 April 1696. On both the outward and return journies he travelled by way of the Brenner, Germany and the Low Countries. He landed in England on 20 October 1695 and remained there until 6 January 1696. Dal Pino's account of the stay in England covers 100 pages. It includes notes of the envoy's diplomatic and social activity, a long description of a Lord Mayor's show (p. 143-49), descriptions of visits to Windsor and Hampton Court, with comments on the works of art, and reports of proceedings in Parliament. The narrative is followed by a list of the stages of the journeys and an index of places.
