BROWN, Antony. Cuthbert Heath : Maker of the Modern Lloyd's of London. Newton Abbot: David & Charles, (1980). Pp 220, frontis.,  pp col. plates. Large 8vo, brown cloth. "Heir to a romantic family tradition and the son of a distinguished admiral, he was prevented from joining the Navy himself because of deafness. Instead, he brought courage, individualism and an unmistakable touch of genius to his chosen field. To him, more than anyone else, Lloyd's and the London insurance market owes its international pre-eminence today." -from the dj. Slight dampwrinkling, else vg in dampstained dj. 20.00
