Making use of new and original material based on first-hand sources, this book interrogates the vogue for collecting, discussing, depicting and putting to political and cultural use Roman antiquities in the French Renaissance. It surveys a range of activity from the labours of collectors and patrons to royal entries, considers attacks on the craze for the antique, and sets literary instances among a much wider spectrum of artistic endeavour.
