Reviews

“Book history as a field has shown an increasing willingness in recent years to engage with neighbouring fields, and interesting cross-fertilisations may arise in unexpected places: as such, SHARPists with an interest in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century visual culture may well find much here of interest.” (Susan Pickford, SHARP News, sharpweb.org, August, 2016)​
