This book explores the use of lighting (oil lamps and candles), heating (wood and coal) and water in 17th and 18th century Parisian interiors.
It details the production methods of candles, the commercial channels which transported to Paris tallow, wax, coal and water, and also their delivery and storage in private houses and in royal palaces. It also studies the influence of heating and lighting on decoration and furnishing, their consumption, prices, and their influence on social life. About the water, the introduction of bathrooms, toilets and ice houses is also mentioned.
This book is based on an unpublished documentation: archives from the king's house, post-death inventories, memoirs of contemporaries, dictionaries and technical and architecture treatises...
