As a way to understand changes in the middle ages, I want to know the development of market towns. Particularly, I am looking for the increase in their number, organised by country and period (e.g. century).

So far I haven't found much. For instance, Wikipedia states:

The Domesday Book of 1086 lists 50 markets in England. Some 2,000 new markets were established between 1200 and 1349.

The reference provided continues:

After this date, the Black Death caused many markets to be abandoned. It has been estimated that there were about 760 official markets during the Tudor and Stuart period.

Wikipedia also mentions a "systematic study of European market towns between the 13th and 15th century" made by Braudel and Reynold. It might refer to the book "Civilization and Capitalism, 15th-18th Century". I searched through it but has no statistical analysis of different countries and periods. There are some statistics, as the one reflected in the map below, but no spatial-temporal comparative analysis.

Are you aware of a systematic, country-period analysis of the evolution of market towns?
