Various: pre-war - "The Ismay Line" White Star history

Product Description

White Star Line: "The Ismay Line: The White Star Line, and the Ismay Family Story" by Wilton J. Oldham, printed 1961, hardbound w/ original dust jacket, 284 pages.

While ever since the sinking of the TITANIC it has been popular to bash Bruce Ismay, in this book Oldham writes a very sympathetic account of both Bruce and his father Thomas, founder of White Star.

Much of the content comes from Ismay family letters and journals. This provides an inside look at family issues as Thomas works hard to build his White Star empire and readies it to be run by the next generation.

At the time of the TITANIC sinking, Bruce Ismay was regarded as one of the finest ship line managers in the world, so much so that J.P. Morgan gave him carte blanche to save his floundering International Mercantile Maritime Company. If only he hadn't stepped onto the last lifeboat to leave the sinking ship, even after helping scores of passengers onto earlier boats and even after looking around to see if there was anyone else waiting nearby.

The ship sank and so Ismay's career.

Good condition with moderate wear to the dust jacket.
