Excerpt from English Industries of the Middle Ages: Being an Introduction to the Industrial History of Medieval England

The rise of the capitalist and the monopolist, the social revolution of the Reformation, with the aboli tion of the monastic houses and the beginnings of the poor-law system constituted a' new era for the working classes even when unaccompanied by any startling change in methods or mechanical media. Moreover, from the middle of the sixteenth century documents and records relating to industrial matters become more numerous and more accessible, and this is therefore the usual starting-point for those who write upon these subjects. For these reasons my accounts of the various selected industries will be found to end at such dates within the sixteenth century as have seemed convenient, though I have not slavishly refrained from taking out of the seventeenth century occasional details applicable to the earlier period.

Such, then, are the lines upon which I have built my book. If any critic considers that the subject should have been dealt with on another plan, he is at liberty to prove his contention by so treating it himself.
