9781331140023: The British Corn Trade: From the Earliest Times to the Present Day (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The British Corn Trade: From the Earliest Times to the Present Day

IN the following book an attempt has been made to give the general reader some idea of the corn trade, as it has existed in this country from the earliest times. It is, of course, impossible within the limits of this monograph to describe in the detail the subject deserves the developments of the corn trade in this country from those far-away days when a serious failure of the crops in the home counties meant the most serious distress to the citizens of London. We trust, however, that this Sketch, though necessarily in outline, will afford a more or less clear idea of the mighty changes that have attended the British corn trade from its rude beginnings in mediaeval times to the very recent days when this country had become the dominant figure in the inter national grain trade. How that proud position was lost in the storm and stress of the great war, which raged for four years, three months and eight days, is told in the concluding chapter. But the Paradise which was then lost will surely be regained. The descendants of Pym and Hampden are not degenerates, and will not for ever, nor for very much longer, it may be hoped, leave any branch of trade in the paralysing grasp Of State control. In a note at the end Of this book the author acknowledges the assistance he has derived from some standard works on the corn trade, including the admirable year books of Mr. George Broomhall. He is also deeply indebted to Mr. John Kirkland's Three Centuries of Wheat, Flour, and Bread, the only book, as far as he is aware, which affords a continuous record Of wheat, flour, and bread prices from 1600 to 1917.
