The History of the Worshipful Company of Fuellers

£14.99

Product description

The history of the Worshipful Company of Fuellers. Murder, drowning, riots, bribery, the pillory - with infusions of the spirits of Chaucer, Shakespeare, Handel, Samuel Pepys, Daniel Defoe, Charles Dickens and many other great British names: not quite what you would expect to find in the thousand-year history of a London Livery Company. But then, The Worshipful Company of Fuellers is no ordinary Livery. For a start, it is unique in the world of Liveries, being the only Company in the world (and the Livery concept is indeed a global, not just European, phenomenon) to focus on the planet's most critical area of concern: energy. It is also one of very few such Companies to have been able to 're-brand' itself triumphantly from its distant medieval roots - they were originally 'Woodmongers' - and re-emerge in its own right in the latter part of the 20th century.
