'Animals and Early Modern Identity provides a wealth of new work in early modern animal studies, ranging across Europe and into the non-European world of exploration and colonial encounters and in the process engaging such varied topics as pedagogy, animal husbandry, the visual arts, trade and travel, court culture, philosophy, and sport. ... Should attract the attention of a wide scholarly audience interested in the early modern period and its various appropriations of animals and animality.' Bruce Boehrer, Florida State University, USA
'This beautiful and pleasurable collection of sixteen essays provides an excellent contribution to the current lively discussion within animal studies.' Times Literary Supplement
'This handsome volume ... brings together essays exploring the significance of animals in different aspects of early modern life and culture, uniting historians, art historians, and specialists of literature. Contributing to the burgeoning academic field of animal studies, these articles address a lacuna in the state of the matter, considering nonhuman animals and their representation in pre-Romantic Europe and its empires.' Journal of the Northern Renaissance
'[A] richly illustrated and well-produced volume ... the real strength of this volume lies in the wide range of exciting original archival research presented and analysed ... This volume demonstrates vividly how much untapped material remains in the archives. For this quality alone it would already deserve a wide readership.' European History Quarterly
