Prepared by Michael Steer

Merchant's Guilds (or Companies) were established primarily to obtain and maintain the privilege of carrying on trade. Having secured this privilege the guilds guarded their monopoly jealously. The organization of the merchant guilds is known from the few constitutions or guild rolls that have survived. These documents are only four in number, but fortunately refer to towns in four different parts of England. They are the guild statutes of Berwick, Southampton, Leicester and Totnes. This paper provides a wealth of information on the Totnes Guild. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. The Internet Archive makes available, in its Community Texts Collection (originally known as Open Source Books), books that have been digitised by Google from a number of libraries. These are books on which copyright has expired, and are available free for educational and research use. This rare book was produced from a copy held by the Princeton University Library, and is available from the Internet Archive.
