Saint George Steam Packet Company, The: 1821-1843

This booklet tells the story of one of the pioneer British Shipping Companies, dating from 1822, which ran services on the Irish Sea and across the North Sea between Hull and Continental ports. Within its fleet were vessels which became the first steamships to cross the Atlantic and to go to Australia, and the first steam merchant ship to be seen in New Zealand waters. The 24 pages give the history of the Company and details of 44 vessels which made up the fleet.
