Abstract

Recent years have seen a surge of interest in early modern global trade and the kinds of interactions and exchanges that arose between Asia and Europe as a consequence. However, sometimes these investigations have tended to lose sight of the more quotidian diffusion of trade goods and objects and their impact on local communities, of the role played by the host of intermediaries who facilitated the process (such as apothecaries, artisans, missioner priests), and of the small but significant changes wrought on aspects of everyday life and sensibilities.
