Reasons for vesting the settlements on the coast of Africa in the Crown, and the dangers of an exclusive company demonstrated: 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.)
