“On Liberal Terms:” The Boston Hide-Merchants in California


Fritzsche, Bruno (1968). “On Liberal Terms:” The Boston Hide-Merchants in California. Business History Review, 42(04):467-481.

Abstract

From Dana's Two Years before the Mast, a vast literary audience has read of the activities of Boston hide-traders in California during the 1840's. But Dana's understanding of the business of which he was a small part was far less accurate than his knowledge of ships and the sea. This gap is now filled by Dr. Fritzsche's analysis of the mechanics and profitability of the trade
