Description


As more parts of the world outside Europe became accessible =- and in the wake of social and technological developments in the 18th century - a growing number of exotic artefacts entered European markets. The markets for such objects thrived, while a collecting culture and museums emerged.

This book provides insights into the methods and places of exchange, networks, prices, expertise, and valuation concepts, as well as the transfer and transport of these artefacts over 300 years and across four continents. The contributions are from international experts, including Ting Chang, N lia Dias, No mie Etienne, Jonathan Fine, Philip Jones, Sylvester Okwunodu Ogbechie, L a Saint-Raymond, and Masako Yamamoto.
