Editorial Reviews


"A noteworthy addition to our understanding of the economic past." -- George Dameron, Renaissance Quarterly

"Provides singular glimpses into the function and practice of a local economy that will be useful to anyone concerned with late-medieval business." -- Thomas W. Blomquist, Speculum

"In an exceptionally well-documented volume, based on 45 account books distilled into seven short chapters, Richard K. Marshall gives us both a glimpse of the lives of 17 tradesmen and an introduction to their business practices." -- Frances Andrews, Historian

"Marshall's book is a fine introduction to late medieval business practices, and it deserves to be read by late medievalists, specialists in Italian history, and business historians." -- Paolo Squatriti, Business History Review

"This is an extremely valuable, informative and admirable concise study which shows the percocity of the Italian urban economy at this time." -- Craig Muldrew, History
