Description

This chapter makes a division, for the sake of presentation, between the two activities of selling (trading) and making things. This is arbitrary as craftsmen who made things naturally also sold them; but there were people, such as merchants, who sold things made by others. First, however, there were three kinds of buildings which were characteristic of most of the crafts of both sorts: shops (with the use of adjacent cellars), craft or livery halls, and almshouses
