356 pp, 8vo, hard cover (dark green boards, gold lettering on spine/front cover) - no dust jacket. "The present volume is essentially a history of the United States firm and its practice. The first chapter gives some of the highlights of the initial development of the London firm. References are later made to many of the associated firms in other countries, particularly to the early days of the Canadian firm when the American practice was all one. The London firm during its second 50 years developed and expanded its practice throughout Great Britain and initiated many of the overseas developments of the international organization. This record is written for the intimate family of Price Waterhouse & Co., not for outside distribution. It closes with the death of one of our most colorful figures, J.C. Scobie, in 1944." Interior - a few erased pencil check marks against peoples names listed at the rear of the book who were linked to Price Waterhouse, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks.
