Author(s): Häberlein, Mark
1. AllgemeinDie große Bedeutung, die Tieren für die menschliche Ernährung, als Transport- und Fortbewegungsmitteln sowie als Prestigeobjekten und Statussymbolen zukam, fand in einem differenzierten T. der Nz. Niederschlag. Dabei kann zwischen dem Handel mit Schlachtvieh (Rindern, Schafen, Schweinen) zur Versorgung städtischer Bevölkerungen (vgl. Nutztiere), dem Handel mit Pferden als vielseitig einsetzbaren Reit-, Last- und Arbeitstieren (s. u. 3.) sowie dem Austausch exotischer Tiere im Kontext der Luxus- und Repräsentationsbedürf…

Karawanenhandel

Author(s): Häberlein, Mark
1. AllgemeinVor den Innovationen der Navigations-Technik im 14. und 15. Jh. und den darauf folgenden Entdeckungsreisen erfolgte der Fernhandel zwischen Großregionen überwiegend auf dem Landweg. Die ariden Zonen im Inneren Asiens, im Orient sowie in der Sahara stellten dabei bedeutende Hindernisse dar, galt es doch, mit starken Temperaturschwankungen, mit geringen Nahrungsmittel- und Wasserressourcen sowie einem Terrain zurechtzukommen, das meist wenig Orientierungshilfen bot. Die Organisation i…

Author(s): Häberlein, Mark
1. Spektrum der WelthandelsgüterIn der Nz. wurde zwar mit einer großen Vielfalt an Waren gehandelt, doch kann nur ein begrenztes Spektrum an Gütern in dem Sinne als W. bezeichnet werden, dass sie wert- und mengenmäßig im interkontinentalen Handels-Verkehr eine signifikante Rolle spielten. Dies hatte verschiedene Gründe: Die begrenzte Haltbarkeit bzw. Konservierbarkeit setzte dem Handel mit vielen Nahrungsmitteln und anderen verderblichen Gütern ebenso Grenzen (Lebensmittelkonservierung) wi…

Japan trade

(797 words)

Author(s): Häberlein, Mark
Within a few years of the discovery of the sea route to India by Vasco da Gama in 1497/98, the Portuguese had built an extensive network of bases in the Indian Ocean stretching as far as the Strait of Malacca in the east. Although word of the wealth of China and Japan had fired the imaginations of Europeans since the reports of Marco Polo, forging commercial relations with these empires initially proved difficult.When the first Portuguese arrived in Japan in 1543, the…

Author(s): Häberlein, Mark
1. The beginnings of trade-relations between native Americans and Europeans After the Spaniards had subjugated the great indigenous empires of continental Central and SouthAmerica (Conquista), they set up a colonial government and secured for themselves the control over productive land as well as the affiliated trade monopolies (Colonial empire); the trade with the native population was more or less restricted to barter in hard-to-access frontier regions. In pre-1600North America, however,  all European a…

Global commodity

(2,351 words)

Author(s): Häberlein, Mark
1. Definition In the early modern period, a great variety of commodities were traded, but only a limited range of them can be called global commodities in the sense that they played a significant role in intercontinental trade in quantity and value. There were several reasons for this. Danger of spoilage imposed limits on trade in many foodstuffs and other perishable goods (Foodstuffs, conservation of), as did transportation costs of goods whose price differential between place of origin and final destination was small.Varying consumer preferences (Consumption) and tastes a…

India trade

Author(s): Häberlein, Mark
1. The Portuguese (16th century) The Indian subcontinent was already woven into wide-ranging commercial networks by the time the sea route from Europe to Asia was discovered. Merchants from Gujarat exported goods including rice to Malindi in East Africa and Hormuz on the Gulf of Persia. They also pursued trading relations with Sumatra and Malacca. Arabian merchants transported Indian pepper (Spices), silk, and precious stones to the ports of the Persian Gulf and Red Sea, from where the car…

Author(s): Häberlein, Mark
1. EuropeanSee Herbals; PharmacyMark Häberlein2. Non-EuropeanAsian spices were valued in Europe since the Middle Ages not only as recreational stimulants but also for their prophylactic and therapeutic effect [4. 107–110]. With the opening of a sea route to India in the 16th century, the Portuguese gained direct access to the Asian markets for spices and medicinal plants which previously had been imported to Europe via Venice (Maritime trading routes). At the same time – like the Spanish in America – they came to know …

Caravan trade

(1,468 words)

Author(s): Häberlein, Mark
1. Introduction Before the innovations in navigation technology in the 14th and 15th centuries and the subsequent voyages of discovery, long-distance trade between global regions mostly took the land route. The arid regions of the Asian interior, the Orient, and the Sahara presented considerable obstacles here, and traders had to deal with extreme fluctuations of temperature, scarcity of food and water, and a terrain that generally offered few navigational landmarks. From Antiquity until the 20th…

Author(s): Häberlein, Mark
1. AllgemeinMit der Gründung der engl. East India Company ( EIC) und der niederl. Vereenigden Oost-Indischen Compagnie ( VOC) hatten die nordwesteurop. Seemächte um 1600 einen neuen Typus der staatlich privilegierten, mit Handels-Monopolen und mit Souveränitätsrechten in Übersee ausgestatteten Kapitalgesellschaft geschaffen, der sich im 17. und 18. Jh. zur dominierenden Organisationsform des europ.

Animal trade

(1,197 words)

Author(s): Häberlein, Mark
1. Introduction The great importance of animals to humans, as food, means of transport and propulsion, and prestige objects and status symbols, was reflected in a complex animal trade in the early modern period. Distinctions can be made between the trade in animals for slaughter (Cattle, Sheep, Pig) to supply urban populations (Livestock), the trade in horses as a versatile riding, draft, and working animal (see below, 3.), and the trade in exotic animals in the context of elites’ appetite for lux…

Pearls (probably from Vulgar Latin  pernula; “haunch,” “sea-mussel”) - accretions of mother-of-pearl, generally around the size of a pea and spherical or pear-shaped, that form in response to irritation in freshwater and seawater bivalves, became exceedingly popular jewelry items and status symbols for the social elites of Europe and Asia in ancient times and have remained so ever since (cf. also Crown [symbol of sovereignty]).

Plantation (estate)

(2,399 words)

Author(s): Häberlein, Mark
1. DefinitionPlantations are large agricultural operations, found mostly in the tropics and subtropics, that produce commodities for trans-regional markets. In contrast to haciendas, which mostly produced grain and cattle for regional markets, early modern plantations concentrated on cash crops like sugar, tobacco, cotton, and coffee, whose production was usually highly labor-intensive; they also contributed little to self-sufficiency. Also in contrast to haciendas, it was unusual on plantations …
