A BRITISHER IN THE PHILIPPINES or The Letters of Nicholas Loney. Introduction by Margaret Hoskyn. The National Library of Manila, Manila. 1964 First edition 126pp Illustrated Hardback. This fine, scarce copy is bound in original green buckram with gilt titling to the spine and to a blind embossed frame on the upper board. There is a neat gift inscription to the f.e.p. dated 1981. A dust wrapper is not called for. As the Philippines, opened to international trade, Kerr & Co. sent Nicholas Loney to Manila where he became a popular figure among the business community. When Iloilo City was opened to international trade in 1856, he was appointed as first British Vice Consul in Iloilo. Sugar production was increasing due to growing price of sugar in Manila and Loney helped the plantation owners and farmers by providing loans and purchasing modern machinery from Europe through his firm, Loney & Kerr Co., which helped increased the efficiency of sugar production in Iloilo. He also encouraged improvements in infrastructure at the port of Iloilo, reclamation of the western bank of Iloilo River and the construction of the Calle Progreso (present day Isidro de la Rama Street) which became the location of numerous sugar warehouses.
