Beschreibung

'Readers interested in thing theory and students of material culture as discussed especially in literature will appreciate this book's efforts. Historical geographers can gain much from the interdisciplinary collaboration exhibited in this volume. Overall, the collection does highlight how humans relate to objects and convincingly displays how understanding such relationships can deepen our understanding of some aspects of the eighteenth-century world.' Journal of Historical Geography

Ileana Baird is a Postdoctoral Preceptorship Fellow at the University of Virginia, USA. Christina Ionescu is an Associate Professor of French Studies at Mount Allison University, Canada.
