Description - The Artisan and the European Town, 1500-1900 by Geoffrey Crossick
A collection of essays focusing on the arisanal presence and the artisanal experience in Europe between the beginning of the early modern period and the end of the 19th century. The works cover a broad topic area, from the masters who served the most demanding of aristocratic clients to the journeymen who travelled round Central Europe in search of work and opportunities, from ritual representations of the social order to the fate of artisans and their guilds in a major port city during the French Revolution. Also explored are artisans' political activities and the presence and difficulties of women artisans.
