This history of a New Zealand shipping company with world-wide interests, and by 1940 greatly diversified from its solely ship-owning focus when formed in 1875, was published by th USSCo in 1940 to commemorate "the Centenary of British Settlement in New Zealand." The book traces the development of the company from before its establishment as such, up tp 1939. As well as the progressive development of the maritime arm, which became strong by world standards with particilar influence in Australiasian and Pacific services, both cargo and passenger, the history examines other wholly-owned or subsidiary interests. These included property in NZ and Australia, oil storage facilities, a slipway in Wellington, an hotel in Suva and formation of NZ's first major airline, Union Airways, in 1936. Shipping and business affairs are studied in the book, which has an extensive list of ships owned by the USSCo and its associate companies. First edition of 1940, 55 pages, b/w photos throughout of ships, buildings, directors, senior staff and leading captains, while the company's "amorial bearings" (coat-of-arms) provides the colour frontis. Blue hard covers with gilt front titles and decoration are VG+, though the top corner has a lightly faded area from mid-point on the top edge to mid-point on the vertical edge, also shallow fade to top section rear cover, small/neat pencil name/date on front pastedown, otherwise internally excellent. Two substantial newspaper articles relating to the company are loosely enclosed. N° de ref. de la librería 004111
