Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This impressive collection of essays seeks both to trace the gradual technical evolution of the trade during the later medieval and early modern periods and to gauge its social, political, and cultural causes and consequences....by gathering into a single volume such a wide array of perspectives on this important topic the book will prove a valuable resource for future research on the economy and society of preindustrial northwestern Europe."--Sixteenth Century Journal
