Bellies, bowels and entrails in the eighteenth century

Amélie Junqua

Manchester University Press

The consumption of paper within the social body is the focus of the chapter. Using paper in the eighteenth-century is as the act of eating, providing fuel and nourishment, but also discarding waste, that in turns produces yet more lucrative materials. Paper evidences the movement of commerce in society, the passing of matter through the huge body of the “commonwealth.”

Keywords:   Paper history, eighteenth-century consumption, paper waste, literary waste, re-use
