Author: ALFORD, B.W.E.
Title: W.D. and H.O.Wills and the Development of the U.K. Tobacco Industry, 1786-1965
Description: London, Hutchinson. 1973, First Edition. (ISBN: 0416766404) Hardcover with dust jacket, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. This independent and critical study in economic and social history is based on free access to the records of W.D. & H.O. Wills. Dr Alford traces the history of the firm from its origin to its transformation into a constituent part of a larger company. Having played such a leading role in the development of the UK tobacco industry, Willis' book is more than the history of a single firm, it also provides an important study of a leading consumer goods industry. Drawing on aspects of economic theory, the author examines the firm's development in the light of general aspects of business history. Some fading to boards. Good/Very Good.
