This volume looks at the South German merchant community during Antwerp's Golden Age by examining German involvement in the social life of the city as well as by tracing merchants' commercial activities. The first section of the book considers the institutions of trade and the role Germans played in their development and how Germans interacted with other foreign merchant communities. The second section takes a wider view by tracing the commercial networks that South German merchants operated in and by quantifying South German participation in Antwerp's foreign trade.
