MATTHEW BOULTON: Enterprising Industrialist of the Enlightenment

Edited by Prof Kenneth Quickenden, Sally Baggott and Malcolm Dick

Published 2013 by Ashgate.

ISBN 978-1-4094-22181

Exploring the many activities and manufactures of Matthew Boulton - and the regional, national and international context in which he operated - this volume provides a valuable index to the current state of Boulton studies. Combining original contributions from social, economic and cultural historians, with those of historians of science, technology and art, archaeologists and heritage professionals, the book sheds new light on the general culture of the eighteenth century,including patterns of work, production and consumption of the products of art and industry. The book also extends and enhances knowledge of the Enlightenment, industrialisation and the processes of globalisation in the 18th Century.


The individual chapters represent many of the papers given at the Boulton Bicentennial Conference held in Birmingham in July 2009
