1698ff, Separate Traders to Africa, Arg. Opposing Parl. Settlement
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.)
Title:   Reflections on the separate traders proceedings, in opposition to the settlement of the African trade.
