The customary treatment of Mediterranean trade from the 11th to the mid-15th century emphasizes the predominance of western merchants and the commercial exchange of spices and eastern raw materials for western woollens and other finished products. The studies in this collection, the sixth by David Jacoby to be published in the Variorum series, adopt a different perspective. They underscore the economic vitality of various countries bordering the eastern Mediterranean, their industrial capacity, the importance of exchanges between them, and the important contribution of the merchants based in that region to trans-Mediterranean trade. They also illustrate the role of hitherto neglected commodities, such as timber, iron, silk and cheese, in that trade.Trade and Banking in Crusader Acre 111 these quarters enjoyed internal autonomy, those of Venice and Pisa even an ... settlement in Acre for the gathering of information are clearly illustrated by an unpublished Venetian commercial manual. ... im Heiligen Land vom ersten Kreuzzug bis turn Tode Heinrichs von Champagne (1098-1197), Amsterdam 1989, pp. 438-454, 462-483 , passim, yet some different interpretations are required in connection with grants bestowed in Tyre: see D.
