Excerpt from The Cutlery Trades: An Historical Essay in the Economics of Small-Scale Production These chapters are the outcome of an inquiry begun when I was occupied in the teaching of Economics in the University of Sheffield. I there found myself fascinated by the sharp contrast presented by the two great staple trades of the locality - the ancient cutlery trades on the one hand and the modern heavy steel industry on the other - exemplifying, as they do, two antithetical types of organization and two widely divergent stages of industrial evolution. It has seemed worth while to bring together an historical account of these older trades, and to study in particular those rapidly disappearing features which appear to be survivals from an earlier industrialism. The main interest of the book is thus retrospective - a fact sufficiently indicated by the nature of the illustrations - though the examination of the present technical and commercial situation of the trades has not been neglected. While the foreground of my picture is necessarily monopolized by one particular group of industries, I have endeavoured, by means of allusions to the parallel development of other comparable trades, to give it a setting which will serve to suggest the unity of all industrial history.
