A map illustrating the flourishing English trade with Europe during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I of England (r. 1558-1603). Following the abolishment of the Hanseatic merchants' Baltic monopoly, access to a new commodities market in Amsterdam, and establishment of various trade companies (Muscovy, Eastland, Levant, and East India), the English merchants could now exchange wool and woolen cloth for grain, timber, oriental spices and continental wine, furs, silk, gems and exotic fruit from as far away as China, Africa, and the Americas.
