Resumen del libro

The Ashmolean Museum is proud to make this important volume containing the fascinating story of the modern museum's beginnings available again. This ground-breaking book traces the story of collecting, which is the story of curiosity about objects and the world, by focusing on the nobility and specialists who laid the important groundwork for the current concept of museums. The first edition in 1985 sold out within a few months, the second a year or two later, and the third in 1989. There has been no reprint of the original edition since then. The topics covered by these essays are wide-ranging, and the scholarship is impeccable, enlightening, and full of unknown facts. It represents a broad-sweep of history that will captivate and surprise the expert and the interested reader alike.
