438 pp, 9 1/4" H. Inscribed on title page: "Harold H. Peacock: / With warm regards and appreciation / for a long friendship / Duncan C. Campbell / April 1985." B&w photographs. "In 1928, the year in which Alcan began its own journey, the fledgling company's prospects were not bright, and within four years they had dimmed still further thanks to the Great Depression's deadly stranglehold. Alcan had, however, some gilt-edged assets: its employees, men and women of talent, loyalty and above all industry, led by a team cast from the same mold and headed by that brilliant entrepreneur-scholar, Edward K. Davis. (This) is the story of these people and their company. Through a blend of skill, far sightedness, luck and plain hard work they made Alcan what it is today: a world leader in the aluminum industry. From its modest birth through its precarious infancy they nurtured its growth into the giant Canadian multinational enterprise now recognized around the world, thereby realizing that dream of a a global mission which had inspired its founders." Volume I only. Very light wrinkling at top/botom of spine, minor cocking to spine. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wear at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, a few tiny and small edge tears - some with creases at top of rear panel - archivally taped, small line indentation on spine, very light rubbing.
