1 LANGLEY, John G. CUNARD, Samuel Steam Lion : A Biography of Samuel Cunard. First Edition in dustjacket
Nimbus, Halifax, 2006, ISBN:155109584x 
LANGLEY, John G. Steam Lion : A Biography of Samuel Cunard. (Halifax): Nimbus, (2006). First Printing. Pp. [i]-xii,(2),[1]-169,(1), + 16 p. of plates.Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine.

"This is the story of a man, born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, who became one of the most powerful forces in international trade in the nineteenth century. Samuel Cunardís lists of interests reads like a history of the Maritimes - shipbuilding in Chatham, coal mining in Cape Breton, forestry in Prince Edward Island, and warehouses in Halifax. But his business acumen and vision extended far beyond eastern Canada. His innovative steamship, Britannia was the first reliable, timely link between the Old World and the New, and the transatlantic transportation of mail, goods and passengers was revolutionized. The continued success of the Cunard Line is a testament to Samuel Cunardís brilliance as both a mariner and a businessman.

"The first full-length biography of one of the most fascinating figures in mercantile history, Steam Lion is an important and engaging record of a man, his business, and his times." - from the dj.
