Objects and their Histories, 1500-1800: Objects and their Histories, 1500-1800 - Early Modern Themes (Hardback)Paula Findlen (editor)
- Coming soon
Early Modern Things supplies fresh and provocative insights into how objects - ordinary and extraordinary, secular and sacred, natural and man-made - came to define some of the key developments of the early modern world. Divided into six parts this book explores; the ambiguity of things, representing things, making things, empires of things, consuming things and lastly the power of things. The authors provide examples in how to study the circulation, use, consumption and, most fundamentally, the nature of things themselves. This second edition includes three new chapters on Africa, Asia and the Atlantic. This book is essential reading for all those interested in the early modern world.
