|Summary:|| "This is the first attempt to recover the entirety of women's contribution to British museums in the period 1850-1914. It sheds lights on women as museum workers, donors and visitors, demonstrates that through such roles women profoundly influenced the development of museums in the period and suggests that museums were a key site for the development of modern gendered identities"--Back cover.
