Reprint of the 1906 edition. This study of English monopolies is divided into two sections. The first is a political history of English monopolies from 1559 to 1640. The second looks the effect Royal licenses had on the organization and development of different industries. Enriched with 100 pages of source documents, this oft-cited treatise remains a standard work.
