This book is a study of the New River Company. It gives a highly complex and comprehensive analysis of the complicated legal problems encountered from the company's inception in the in the first decade of the seventeenth century to its municipalization and conversion to a property company at the turn of the twentieth century.
The problems of water supply, hygiene and even general business matters are examined in a relatively narrow framework. As s legal history, this book is full of technical terms. This book, however, is not without merits. It contains interesting chapters on shares, in which tracing the progress of some of the company stock through some of the various hands is discussed, as well as governance and finance yields.
