Various: pre-war - "White Star" by Roy Anderson

Product Description
White Star Line: "White Star" by Roy Anderson, published in 1964, hardbound with original dust jacket, 240 pages.

Just twenty-seven-years-old when the book was published, Anderson writes an affectionate and moving account of White Star's many ups and downs.

He begins in the sailing days of the 1850s when an Australian gold rush filled ships with vagabonds and gentry, all hoping to get rich. The boom turned to bust and by 1867 White Star was broke.

Then an energetic entrepreneur named Thomas Ismay bought the name and houseflag for all of 1,000 pounds. Ismay invested heavily in steam, thanks to an association with Harland and Wolff shipbuilders. By the late 19th century White Star liners were among the most luxurious and fastest ships on the North Atlantic.

The author admits to be a White Star fan. "I was born after it had died," he said, "yet its greatness magnetised me." Anderson's story is considered by some to be the definitive history of the company. I agree, and it is also a delight to read.

Very good condition.
