Front Cover
Hambledon Continuum, 2007 - Business & Economics - 254 pages
This book examines one of the most dynamic groups in early modern Britain, the overseas merchants of the City of London. By 1800 London could claim pre-eminence as an international centre of commerce and finance, and its merchants were vital to that achievement. The modern City of today still owes much to these eighteenth-century commercial leaders
