Company of Merchants Trading to the Levant. The second work concerning trade with the Levant shows the increase in commercial activity between Great Britain and Turkey and Egypt. It was felt that a burden on the British merchants was the Charter of the company requiring them to maintain their own consuls and officers abroad. If the Charter was surrendered, trade and profit would be increased as a result of the Government taking over these responsibilities. Scarce.

Not ascribed to Lord Grenville (1759-1834) in the BL catalogue but the inscription strongly implies the work is by him.

8vo, 2 items bound in one, xii, 85; [iv], 48 (i.e., 46, last leaf misnumbered) pp., second work inscribed at head of half-title, contemporary morocco-backed blue cloth, a very good copy.
Provenance

Provenance: Henry Watkins Williams Wynn, nephew of Lord Grenville (bookplate); William St Clair, author of That Greece might still be Free.
