Louder than words
ways of seeing women workers in eighteenth-century France
Geraldine Sheridan.

Published 2008 by Texas Tech University Press in Lubbock, Tex .
Written in English.

About the Book

"Because eighteenth-century French trade law and corporate archives rarely mention women workers, Sheridan analyzes nearly two hundred period engravings to interpret women's roles in pre-industrial France. Images primarily from Diderot's Encyclopédie and Panckouke's 1777 supplementary volume document women as workers, finishers, and managers in manufacturing, commerce, and the crafts"--Provided by publisher.
