Excerpt from British Merchant Shipping

In January, 1921, it was my privilege to deliver a lecture in the University of Liverpool on the subject of "British Shipping in Relation to British Trade," and shortly afterwards it was suggested that I should expand my paper into a book on British Shipping.

This volume is an attempt to carry out the suggestion. My aim in writing it has been to retrace the steps by which we, as a country, have come into the possession of our Mercantile Marine, and to describe the methods that we pursue in our task of maintaining it.

I thought at first that the subject of British Shipping was too vast to be dealt with adequately in one volume, for there is enough material in the past history and the present performance of our Merchant Service to fill a shelf. On the other hand, it would be useless to present that busy person, "the general reader," with a whole row of books and expect him to have time to cope with so bulky a work. Some day a complete history of Shipping, with all the details and ramifications of its management, ought to be written, but it will not be a one-volume affair.

In the meantime, I have been obliged to condense and omit where I should have preferred to expand.

Such literature as exists on the subject of British Shipping is mainly of a highly technical nature - too technical for the comprehension of either the general reader or the young man about to enter a shipping office.
