The Palestine land Development Company Limited Memorandum and Articles of Association. London, 1909 - First edition.
Articles of regulations of the "Pa lestine Land Development Company" - Israel Land Development Company (ILDC) when founded in 1909. The regulations deal with the company's goals, chief among them the acquisition or lease of lands in Eretz Israel, and also the improvement and promotion of construction on lands acquired by the company, the manner of allocating shares among the founders, and more.
The ILDC was founded in 1909 by the Zionist Federation as the Palestine Land Development Company. This was a plan of the Zionist practical movement in the early Zionism, especially in the decade before the outbreak of World War I. The PLDC worked to acquire lands, to train Jews for agricultural occupations and to establish Jewish agricultural settlements in Eretz Israel. Until the outbreak of World War I it had acquired about 50,000 dunams of land. It tried to acquire almost 3 times that amount in the Jezreel Valley, but it was prevented by the outbreak of the war. The company became an Israeli public company in 1953.
