The Creation of Color in Eighteenth-Century Europe

by Sarah Lowengard

This is a book about the organization of science and technology in 
eighteenth-century Europe, about the relationships of each to the other 
and to the worlds in which they existed. The underlying theme is the 
collection and arrangement of information, and the subsequent employment 
of that information to create a place for its collector—a person or 
occasionally an institution—within the modern world of the eighteenth 
century. Colloquially expressed, it is a study of contemporary answers 
to a question—"What do you think you're doing?"—asked of institutions 
and governments as well as individuals.
