Coastal and river trade in pre-industrial England

£20.99

Product description

DJ has half-inch closed tear at front.

This book covers the internal trade of Bristol and its hinterland in the 17th and 18th centuries, which has been overlooked in the past in favour of the overseas trade.

This volume provides case studies and critical analysis of the principal voyage patterns, commodities, traders and shipping of Bristol and its region in the 17th and 18th centuries, the widely-acknowledged "Golden Age" of the port.

Making use of the data derived from port books, Dr Hussey argues that the extensive coal and river network that served Bristol provided a vital link in the organization of the pre-industrial economy of the city and its domestic hinterlands - south-west England, the central and west Midland counties, the Welsh Borderlands and south and south-west Wales.
Includes tables, figures, maps and plates.
