From tulips to jewels, gastronomy to silver, coffee to colours, that late 17th century and the 18th century saw an explosion of consumer and luxury objexts and a growing demand for their consumption by a widening section of the population. This interdisciplinary volume brings together a group of scholars to chart the rise of consumer culture in Europe during this period. Essays are included on France and Holland, but the focus is primarily on Britain. Themes discussed include art markets, collecting and display, and are set alongside those of value and luxury, and consumer markets and the public sphere.
