A memorial touching the nature and present state of the trade to Africa: n.a., 1-8p, 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.)
