The Early History of Freight Conferences

£14.99

Product description

This is a fascinating book! When monopolies and cartels are pejorative terms it is very revealing to find that the Freight collectives were sponsored and encouraged by governments and ship owners. This makes sense when the highly fragmented nature of the trade and the geographical separation of the ports served in the Far East is considered. To "consider (with a desire to meet) the reasonable wishes of governments, merchants and shippers" becomes a reasonable improvement in the efficiency for all parties to the agreement. One of the early chapters is entitles "Henry VIII's Parochial attitude" so the history is a long one.;

National Maritime Museum Monographs and Reportrs No 51 of 1981. Paperbacked with staple binding showing no rust. 16 Black and white illustrations. Good binding and no marks.

Very interesting
