Description

This is the second selection of articles on economic history by Robert-Henri Bautier to be published by Variorum; the first, Sur l'histoire economique de la France medievale, focused on the infrastructure of economic life within the kingdom of France - the network of land and river routes, and the fairs.

The present collection deals first with European trade across the Mediterranean in the 13th-14th centuries, both on an international level and with regard to particular circumstances, for example, those of Amalfi, charting the changing pattern of its commercial relationships through this period.
