Shipbuilding in Waterford, 1820-1882

£35.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This story of the Waterford shipyards highlights the role of Quakers as entrepreneurs, and particularly as risk-takers, who were willing to fund new enterprises, providing rare economic relief to underdeveloped areas without the guarantee of a good return on their investment . Their shipbuilding ventures in Waterford were as technologically advanced as any similar development of the day, and they certainly primed and brought to fruition the industrial revolution on the banks of the Suir. "Shipbuilding in Waterford" is illustrated with a large range of line etchings, lithographs, oil paintings, photographs, movie stills and video images, which on their own would constitute an invaluable historical record; coupled with the meticulously researched text, they make the book an important addition to our understanding of Ireland's industrial and cultural history.

The book is in good condition with just the dust-jacket showing slight shelf wear
