  • Synopsis

    A history from the mid-nineteenth century of shipping in Chinese waters, mostly dominated by Western steamship companies until the rise of Communist China. This book encompasses the histories of the main sailing companies, foreign and Chinese, which had their origins on the China coast before 1949. The firms covered are mainly British but include the Japanese-flag Nisshin Kisen, the Chinese-flag CMSNC and the C.Y.Tung group. The book documents the fleets of these companies by presenting the career of each ship from construction to ultimate fate, with details of all owners, changes of name, and major incidents where known.
