...possible that the ‘insurance contract’ is more than simply the ‘policy’. An insurance contract is formed according to the general rules applying to all contracts and the law requires very few formalities.

...dating back to the 18th century. Fire insurance records can also be of assistance in charting the history of houses of a variety of sizes. From the early 18th century major works of alteration or new building were likely to be followed by the prudent owner taking out an insurance policy which would have been marked by the attachment of a company plate to the building. Some companies incorporated the policy number on the plate, and these can be used to refer to the original policy, where this survives. The policy books of the Sun Fire Office, founded in ...

A year later his insurance policies amounted to £17,500 (compared with £500 in 1756–7 and £7,700 in 1770 ).

... century the rate of publication rose, from a few hundred titles annually at the beginning, to 3,000 or 4,000 by the mid- 1840s . New technologies ( see 11 ) meant new economies of scale for the book trade, and entrepreneurs also took advantage of changes in the banking and insurance sectors. In 1814 , The Times first used a *steam press to print the newspaper, and although the use of steam for book printing was not commonplace until later, the new technology was perceived as a watershed.

...criminal. This offered considerable scope for private initiative to supplement the official institutions. By the late eighteenth century, property-owners in most parts of the country had established many hundreds of associations for the prosecution offelons as a form of crime insurance.

Instead of slaughtering his opponents, Thutmose III bound them to Egypt by loyalty oaths and then carted assorted Canaanite royal family members off to Egypt as insurance policies for princely good behavior. He also created a network of Egyptian garrison cities and headquarters to carry out Egyptian imperial policies and ambitions and to ensure the steady flow of tribute. Coastal and lowland plain cities, including Megiddo and Bethshan, predominated in the network, but strategic considerations also dictated the...
