Abstract:
The study of the later history of the English Levant Company has been based upon the archives of the Company, preserved at the Public Record Office. Considering the semi-public character of the organisation and the intimate connections with the embassy and the consular service. it was not surprising to find that the records of the Company contained a good deal of material pertaining as much to the political as to the commercial relations of England with the Levant. Even in an economic survey, this matter could not be overlooked, Chapters/Seven and Ten, therefore, deal with material Covering a wider scope than merely the history of the Levant Company. They do not pretend to consider in detail either the policy of Napoleon, in the Near East. nor the diplomatic relations of Great Britain and the Porte. In the former case it seemed necessary to describe the political happenings. of which the reaction precipated the opening of the Levant trade, In the latter case, it was necessary to explain the histoy of the Political cause of the dissolution of the Levant Company
