Excerpt from Commercial Geography

The object of this text is the exposition of the principles of commercial geography as based on a knowledge of its more im portant facts. It is regarded as necessary and advantageous to treat products and regions in a single volume, if perspective is observed and if both products and regions are made contributory to the unfolding of principles. To this end minor commodities and regions must surrender their place to facts of larger meaning.

Part I offers an inductive approach to principles which are formally stated in Chapter VI. The author holds it wise to avoid an introductory statement of abstract relations, and has therefore chosen five products or staples of world-wide interest, treating them broadly as world products and as typical of all others in the geographic principles involved. No materials of commerce are more significant in themselves, or in their relations, than wheat, cotton, cattle, iron, and coal.
