Overview

In the latter half of the 17th century, the Italian merchant Benjamin Burlamacchi operated a thriving international trading company from Amsterdam. Burlamacchi_s firm traded in a wide variety of goods and enjoyed far-flung commercial links throughout Europe, the Baltic, Russia, India, and Dutch colonies in the East Indies and the Antilles. Operating this broad trade network required an extensive international correspondence. These varied documents provide a window into the day-to-day workings of commerce and chronicle the functioning of an important trading network over nearly three decades. Besides documenting the formal mechanisms of international trade during the period 1663 to 1691, these materials shed light on a variety of commercial practices. The archive provides a wealth of material for scholars interested in the society, politics, and colonial relations as well as the economics of early modern Europe. The documents are in Italian, German, English, French, and Dutch.
