Pp (4),[v]-xiv,(2),[1]-224 + portrait frontispiece + 8 leaves of plates. Tables in text. 8vo, brown cloth, gilt lettering to red spine panel. Map end-papers. "Although this book is concerned with the life and work of John Samuel Swire, its main emphasis is on the impact of his ideas on the management of Far Eastern trade and shipping. The important part he played in the orgnization of John Swire & Sons, and in the foundation of Butterfield and Swire, the China Navigation Company, and the Taikoo Sugar Refinery, is made a central theme. A full account is given of his influence on the Far Eastern trades and of his foresight and wisdom in establishing a workable system of freight agreements through Shipping Conferences.
