This is a fabulous old book which sets out the history of the British port shippers in fine detail and is probably the most comprehensive work ever produced on the subject. The author was related to various members of the port trade, his brother being the part-owner of G. H. Sellers & Ferro of Oporto.
The original edition is extremely rare but facsimile and PDF editions are available.
