FLOUNDERING [ROYAL FISHERY COMPANY.]
A Collection of Advertisements, Advices, and Directions, relating to the Royal Fishery within the British Seas, &c.
First edition. The Royal Fishery Company, incorporated in 1662, had great trouble finding subscribers. Initially, Charles II offered £9000 as an incentive to investors but on these only raising £3680 he withdrew his undertaking, instead allowing a lottery to aid the Company’s fortunes. After attempts in 1677 to capitalize the company, much of the property was sold in 1680. The complicated structures governing the company devolved onto 4 directors and 8 masters in 1692.
