This two-part facsimile collection of rare texts explores the changing economic, social and political role of the Anglo-American firm. The first part covers the period 1700-1850. The mid-nineteenth century saw the advent of the railway age and the biggest expansion of the shareholder base since the financial revolution of the late seventeenth century. Throughout the 1840s a series of laws were introduced to regulate the expanding corporate sector and protect shareholders. The decade marks a turning point in the legal identity of the business enterprise, as companies responded by introducing new types of capital structure and business organisation. The second part, therefore, takes these changes into account and brings the story forward from 1850-1914. This edition presents very rare documents from UK and US archives, including minute books, accounts, company prospectuses and legal deeds.
