Trade statistics are a unique source to broaden our understanding of
early-modern economies and their evolution. Still, they have been
under-utilized by researchers.
This volume features a detailed panorama of early-modern trade statistics’
sources and discusses some of the ways they can be used to study the
transformation of European commerce and economies in the late-eighteenth
and early nineteenth century. It is of special interest for both economists
and historians interested in the period of the first Industrial Revolution.
In this special issue, Loïc Charles and Guillaume Daudin have gathered an
wide-ranging list of scholars, experts in the economic history of
early-modern trade from several countries.
This volume include twenty-three short essays discussing the various
available sources on trade data, as well as seven additional research
papers. In total, it provides information on thirty five coun tries or
areas. As to the research articles, three of them discuss methodological
issues regarding the use of early trade statistics, and the remaining four
others actually use some of these trade statistics to produce new insights.

The contributors to this volume are: Loïc Charles, Daniela Ciccolella, Ann
Coenen, Javier Cuenca-Esteban, Guillaume Daudin, Béatrice Dedinger,
Jean-Pierre Dedieu, Jari Eloranta, Hubert Escaith, Mathieu Grenet, Ragnhild
