Edition: 1st Edition

Sellers ID: 03787

On one level , John Somerville's book is a mystery story about the way in which a family that had been among the staunchest pillars of a city's society in late Victorian times melted utterly from the picture by 1912. Yet in reality the influence of the Thomases survived in plain view throughout the Lever Brothers years, and the real message of the story is not the that the company failed by closing in 1953, but that it triumphed by surviving until then. The D/w shows light wear and fading to the top edge of its panels. A good clean and tight copy. View more info
