[A princely hobby: the ateliers of Charles of Lorraine] Th e well-beloved and ﬂ amboyant governor of the Austrian Netherlands, Charles of Lorraine (-), had a marked interest in art, science and technology. For the furnishing of his palace in Brussels and the castles in Tervuren and Mariemont, he established at Tervuren, east of Brussels, a complex of manufacturing industries: a weaving atelier, a cotton printing atelier, a manufacturing industry of wallpaper (which is also occasionally found in books), a porcelain works and even more. In the Konin- klijke Musea voor Kunst en Geschiedenis (Musées royaux d’art et d’histoire) this bub- bling activity was represented by means of some objects concerning both the description of the techniques and the ﬁ nal results, extraordinarily varied, at times quite surprising. For the book / binding historian the well-documented studies by Geert Wisse on decorated paper (‘La production de papier peint à Tervueren’) and by Frieda Sorber on cotton printing (‘Les petits “amusements” textiles du Prince’) were of special interest.
