'A short review cannot do justice to the breadth and depth of quality research in this book. It provides an excellent account of the field and it deserves to be highly regarded.' Parergon 'As with the theme itself, the book's audience is wide, encompassing art, architectural, and cultural historians who, like its editors and contributors, wish to breathe a little social life in the Renaissance palace (Richard Goldthwaite, Wealth and Demand for Art in Italy, 1300 -1600 , qtd. in 1). This is certainly achieved insofar as the variety of topics examined and the richness of the scholarship, including ways of interpreting inventories, are concerned. ...A collection of such scholarship makes an important contribution to increasingly developing studies on material culture and indeed furnishes our understanding of domesticity in the early modern period.'
