Abstract: This review analyzes the importance of commercial treaties and invites examination of the contexts of their genesis and formation. If the topic has been often studied in a sectorial way (economics, politics, ideas), the recognition of the overall role played by treaties in the eighteenth-century commercial order offers a privileged access point to understand the relationships between theory and practice and between the political and economic spheres. Finally, it allows us to revisit some aspects of the eighteenth-century economy such as the advent of manufacturing capitalism or the relations and conflicts between state and merchants.
