Summary

La Condamine and Fresnau first told about rubber in the 18th century. The increasing demand of rubber in the 19th century gave it huge market value. The race for profit sent explorers and adventurers to the Upper Amazon region in the search for rubber zones and access routes. A small number of men, the rubber Barons, made their fortune. However, thousands of indigenous Indians gave up their freedom, suffering and even their lives for rubber. However, by exporting seeds from Brazil to Britain, Wickham triggered the growth of rubber estates in the Far East, where a more efficient, profitable and human rubber agro-industry fortunately developed, and the rubber Barons' empires died out.
