"The English exchequer customs accounts are the most thorough, comprehensive and long-running records of foreign trade to exist for any country in the pre-modern period. The eleven Bristol 'particular' accounts and port books reproduced in this volume were chosen to assist the re-evaluation of the economic development of southern Ireland before and during the Nine Years War (1594-1603). The Bristol accounts are without doubt the best quantitative economic record that exists for studying any aspect of Irish economic development during the sixteenth century, recording in minute detail what was the most important branch of Ireland's overseas trade. As such, these accounts can serve as the starting-point for future research into many aspects of the eceonomic and social development of southern Ireland during this period."- from the dustjacket.
