In the towns of early modern Holland, grain price peaks triggered reactions by the urban authorities. Among them were public grain purchases, to be used for relief. This paper analyses the development of this practice in Amsterdam between the mid-sixteenth and mid-eighteenth century, looking at volumes purchased, expenses incurred and methods employed for the distribution of relief. The crises of 1556-57 and 1698-1700 are examined in greater detail.
