Beschreibung

Calvet's Web is a study of the correspondence network of an Avignon physician in the period 1750-1810. Esprit Calvet was an antiquarian, natural historian, and bibliophile, and was at the centre of a circle of like-minded intellectuals from various backgrounds, chiefly based in the Rhone valley. Laurence Brockliss explores for the first time an important contribution to our understanding of the social construction of knowledge, and offers a new picture of the relationship between the Republic of Letters and the Enlightenment.

Pressestimmen

Recommended. Choice ... elegantly instructive study ... Drawing on the material from the museum, the correspondence and records of Calvet's possessions, Brockliss has been able to draw up a remarkably full portrait of this mildly unattractive man. David A. Bell, London Review of Books
