About this product
- DescriptionConsumption is well established as a key theme in the study of the eighteenth century. Taking English towns as its scene, this book focuses on moments of consumption - purchasing goods, attending plays, promenading - and explores the ways in which these were related together through the spaces of the town: the shop, the theatre and the street.
