Numeration calcul comptabilite et commerce/Keram Kevonian. Postface. Index. The ability of the Armenian traders to measure the risks of long-distance trade and a readiness to vary the size of commercial transactions, their capacity to thrive on low profit margins and move into remote producing centres, appointing their own kith and kin or people of their own community as their agents were some of the important factors for their phenomenal success in overland trade from the sixteenth through the eighteenth century. The present volume showcases that the scale of what individual caravan could transport might produce reservations concerning grand affirmations, but the quick succession of such enterprises, the network they supplied and from which they drew their products put paid to such skepticism. This was especially true when this perspective was combined with the sure knowledge that those who organized enterprises held together both production and a solid link with maritime options.
