- Kurzbeschreibung<p>Chartered by the crown in 1474, the Merchant Adventurers was England's preeminent regulated international trading company until the early nineteenth century. It functioned as a guild, with members who were the only merchants entitled to export finished cloth from the growing English woolen industry, which gave them an unchallenged monopoly. It was the only company entitled to export cloth from England to other countries. The organization served as a social channel for its members, who built The Merchant Adventurers Hall at York in the North of England after the group was formed in 1357. This source book collects eighteen substantial documents written between 1407 and 1805, the most important years of the society's history. This group includes the Charter of 1407, extracts from the Charter of Edward IV (1462) and the Laws and Ordinances of 1608. Taken together, these records form one of the most detailed pictures of business organizations and methods during the later Tudor, the Stuart, and the early Hanoverian eras. With detailed notes and an extensive introduction.CONTENTSThe Merchant Adventurers, A Brief HistoryThe Laws and OrdinancesThe Rise and State of the FellowshipThe Statute of 1497Extracts from Wheeler, A Treatise of CommerceResidence towns of the AdventurersThe number of freemenExtract from "the Debate betweene the Heraides" The Charter of 1407Extracts from the Charter of Edward IV, 1462Extracts from the Charter of Elizabeth of 1464List of the Foreign Grants and Privileges of the FellowshipAbstract of the Privileges of the Merchant Adventurers at DortExtracts from the Court Register of the Company Ordinance of the Lords and Commons, 1643Extract from the Act of 1688, "laying open "the trade of the Society Correspondence by Wm.
