Review:

"[This volume] gathers a rich collection of rigorous essays based on case studies. The topics selected exemplify the recent trends in social history, which reveal new areas for research." - Sixteenth Century Journal

"...this volume offers an array of insights into the multifaceted means employed to construct material advantage...and into a creative management that took many forms and varied across time." - Journal of Social History

Synopsis:

Exchanges always have more than economic significance: values circulate through the exchanges, and the encounters become institutionalized. Exploring the changing meanings of the circulation of second-hand goods from the Renaissance until today, this volume examines the blurring of boundaries between market, gifts, and charity. It describes the actors of the market - official actors such as corporations, recognized professions, and established markets - but also the subterranean circulation that develops around the need for money and that provides for numerous intermediaries, as well as for the many men and women who use these circulations in countless occasions either as sellers or as buyers.
