"This fascinating collection of essays breaks new ground in its representation of the central place of exhibitions in Victorian culture. The book takes us on a grand tour of Victorian display leaving the reader in no doubt that science, for the Victorians, was built around spectacle. This insightful overview is a must read for anyone who wants to understand how and why science became part of nineteenth-century culture." —Iwan Morus, Aberystwyth University
