The geography of the British heavy chemical industry in the nineteenth century

Auteur :
MATTHEWS, M. H.

Description :
The historical geography of the early modern heavy chemical industry in Britain has largely been ignored. This paper attempts to remedy this neglect by focusing upon the most important aspect of the inorganic sector in the nineteenth century, the Leblanc alkali trade. Throughout a geographical perspective is emphasised and it is the evolving spatial pattern of industrial development which provides the central theme. Five periods of change are recognised, each associated with different factors of location.
