1698ff, African Company v. People of England
The case between the African Company and the People of England, briefly laid open in some considerations upon the Company’s petition: n.a., 1-2p,
n.p., n.d. (Lacks TOC & index. For context, see e.g., LLMC Title No. 57025h. By the time of the Glorious Revolution in 1680, the Royal African Company
had effectively lost its monopoly on West African trade due to the activities of uncooperative independents. In 1698 Parliament affirmed that fact in an
act that officially opened up the West African trade to all merchants. In exchange, however, all independents were required to pay a 10% levy to the
Company on all goods exported from Africa to help maintain the infrastructure of forts, etc., which made the trade possible. This contribution
requirement was a constant source of friction between the Company and the independent merchants and their allies. The print text of this title was scanned
from Lincoln’s Inn Library pamphlet volume Misc. 103.)
