Summary
"In Baroque Europe, new fashions, the expansion of court life and the emergence of a genteel style of living called for new services for the body. This groundbreaking study explores the role of those involved in various aspects of the care, comfort and appearance of the body in seventeenth and early eighteenth century Italy, bringing to light the strong cultural affinities and social ties between barber-surgeons and the apparently unconnected trades of jeweler, tailor, wigmaker and upholsterer."--Jacket
