1698ff, Separate Trader to Africa, Letter to
A letter to a Separate Trader to Africa: 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.)
