Item #351956

Speech on the history of Arab Ottoman trade, noting the key position of Egypt as nexus between Red Sea and Mediterranean commercial routes. This was delivered at a time when Egypt was asserting greater claims of sovereignty under Isma‘il and when the trade laws were moving away from shari‘a basis to a commercial code, often derived from European models.
