Editorial Reviews

Review

This beautifully-illustrated book explores the relations between the accumulations of profitable commodities and the production of enlightening knowledge in Europeans' relations with their external worlds, opening a new way of expressing the historical relation between the arts of depicting the world and the techniques for knowing it. -- Simon Schaffer, Department of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Cambridge
Merchants and Marvels traces the paths by which many wonderful commodities were traded and collected in early-modern Europe. The editors and their contributors have produced a marvelous collection-a true Wunderkammer-to delight the mind. -- Jan Golinski, Department of History, University of New Hampshire
A terrific collection, which gives the reader both wonderful new stories, and a vivid sense of how historians are beginning to study the material side of cultural history. These well-presented original essays deserve a wide public. -- Tony Grafton,Department of History, Princeton University
Merchants and Marvels is wide-ranging and thought-provoking. -- Canadian Journal of History
