The Corn-Laws, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

The Corn-Laws, 1845. Creator: Unknown

The Corn-Laws, 1845. Descriptive History of the Laws relative to the Importation and Exportation of Corn'. Article discussing the the Corn Laws, tariffs and other trade restrictions on imported food and grain enforced in the United Kingdom between 1815 and 1846. The word corn denotes all cereal grains, including wheat, oats and barley. The laws were designed to keep grain prices high to favour domestic producers, and to block the import of cheap grain, initially by simply forbidding importation below a set price, and later by imposing steep import duties, making it too expensive to import grain from abroad, even when food supplies were short. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

This, the first widely adopted reaping machine, was shown at the Great Exhibition of 1851 in London where it was awarded a gold medal. Drawn by horses, the machine cut the corn and left it lying in swathes in the harvest field. The figure in the foreground is gathering the corn and tying it into sheaves which would be stood up in stooks, bottom right, to dry before being carried away and stored in stacks. Later models would include a mechanism to bind the corn in sheaves
