ALBION, Robert Greenhalgh. Seaports South of Sahara : The Achievements of an American Steamship Service. With the Collaboration of Jennie B. Pope.[With a foreword by VIce Admiral Edward L. Cochrane]. New York: Appleton-Century-Crofts, (1959). Pp. (4),v-xii,1-316, frontis.+ 8 leaves of plates. Illustrated. Map endpapers. 8vo, blue cloth. "This is the story of American maritime relations with South, East, and West Africa, where the unexpected has suddenly become the order of the day. It is there that the trade of the United States has increased at a faster rate during the past four decades than anywhere else in the world. In this book, intertwined with the broad aspects of African trade and national shipping policy, is the specific achievement of the Farrell shipping service in helping link them together. [...] Having visited the coasts of Africa all the way from Cape Town to Zanzibar and from the Canaries and the Guinea Coast to the Congo, [Albion] gives a colorful picture of all sorts of ports of call and exotic cargoes in the amazingcontrasts of Africa today. There is much about the ships, of course, and l ong sea run down the South Atlantic and into the gales ofthe Indian Ocean; but also about the actual workings of a steamship line -- a mystery to mostof us. We hear of the captains and crews, the stevedores and longshoremen, the agents and overseas representatives, and the New York headquarters all the way up to the two Farrell brothers." - from the dj.
