VAN UYTVEN spite of the price increases in the first half of the sixteenth-century the cost of mastership in this period seems to have risen slightly or not at all, whereas on the other hand the central government took measures against excessive corporatism not only in Ghent but in Bruges and Antwerp as well. The exclusiveness of the guilds began however to reappear about 1560. Charles V's measures against abuses in the guilds was not in fact new.

F. Braudel remarks that 'au voisinage de 50 p. 100, meme de 40 p. 7 In 1514, 52 per cent of the population in Holland lived in the towns, in Brabant in the fifteenth century, about 35 per cent and even in Hainaut in the sixteenth century, at least 29 per cent. In Flanders, jUdging from the fragmentary information available for 1469, the proportion was certainly higher than in Brabant. It must not be forgotten, moreover, that in Flanders, Brabant and Hainaut a good proportion of the rural population was employed in the textile industry (linnen, cloth or carpets) while in Holland and Zeeland innumerable villages had lost their agrarian character in favour of the fishing and shipping industries.
