Editorial Reviews

Booknews
From two The Skilled Workforce in Paris, 1500-1900 conferences held in April and November 1993 in Paris and Oxford, 13 essays combine case studies of particular industries with reflections on general themes relating to the origin of luxury trades and their role in the wider economic development of France and Europe. Presented in sections on making, marketing, and consuming, they consider such aspects as mathematical instrument-making in early modern Paris, the dialogue with Lyon on the design and distribution of patterned silks in the 18th century, and clothes and their function in the 17th and 18th centuries as falling between a moral economy and a consumer economy. Four of the essays are in French. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
