BOOKBINDING TRADE SECTION OF THE LONDON CHAMBER OF COMMER...
With a prefatory note by Charles W. Forward and Thomas E. Powell explaining the history of this labor dispute. Workers in the binding industry had demanded better conditions and higher wages in 1902. This eventually led to a notice of a lock-out of all workers in the trade by the employers. Both parties agreed to arbitration which took place over a seven day period in 1903. Twenty years of statistics and history were presented at this hearing and these facts are given in this lengthy book. The final eight pages of the book summarize Stewart's findings. Contains a wealth of information about the English binding trade. From the reference library of the Zaehnsdorf Company with a commemorative book label loosely inserted. With the bookplate of the Zaehnsdorf Company. Covers faded in places with rubbing along edges.
