This sumptuously illustrated volume brings together 19 curators, historians, conservators, and other heritage professionals to look anew at the country house in Europe from the standpoint of ‘some of the conceptual and historiographical writing on consumption’ and material culture. The publication grew out of a 2012 conference at the University of Northampton (co‐organized by the Economic History Society) whose stated purpose was to consider ‘the country house … [as] a site, product and process of consumption’ (p. 1). Such an inclusive brief ensured that organizing the contributions into consistent themes would be no easy task. The result is, rather like some country houses, not always structurally coherent but full of delights.
