Wholesale Dry Goods, and MANY OTHERS. The Illustrations of the businesses, their buildings and factories, are incredible, I have never seen a gathering like it (the only company I wish was included is Harley-Davidson, which was founded in Milwaukee in 1903). The illustrations truly show the industrial manufacturing and wholesaling strength of Milwaukee in 1905. There are also illustrations of other Milwaukee landmarks, notable buildings, etc. GOOD condition, the rear cover has some paper remnants and some scrapes and rubs, the front cover is darkening at the upper portion, the spine covering has some chips and tears, the front cover has a few small stains, nonetheless the covers are present and still doing their job well; internally there is a crease to the upper corner of some of the early pages, there are light signs of handling, overall the pages are tight, bright, clean, clear and unmarked. A complete, solid, presentable copy. RARE DIRECTORY and ILLUSTRATED GUIDE to MILWAUKEE BUSINESSES.

A lovely, complete set that feels barely used.

    An important addition to the shelves of anyone interested in Shareholder Governance, Wall Street, Stocks, Bonds, Business Economics, or Public Finance.

    These volumes are in hand and ready to ship.

    From the Publisher:

    ******The company archives of England and America are rich repositories of original texts on the subject of governance, a selection of which are published here. Two major issues ripped from the headlines, Japan's prolonged economic slump and the recent Enron debacle in the United States, both point to the importance of corporate governance, the mechanisms that stakeholders use to ensure that their investments are properly used and that any sums owed them for the use of their resources are faithfully calculated and promptly paid in full. Corporate governance seeks, in short, the reduction of the principal agent problem within major business firms. The history of corporate governance, like the history of any subject, can help today's businesses in two ways. First, knowledge of the past can help prevent firms and policymakers from repeating past mistakes. Second, history is also rife with examples of how to do things right. Corporate governance in Britain and the United States in the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries was far from perfect, yet it was also far from being completely flawed. Anglo-American corporate governance, therefore, offers both warnings and lessons. These volumes offer a unique perspective on this fascinating historical topic. We present a comprehensive selection of texts drawn from the archives of corporations in England and America. Many of these texts are very rare and very few have ever been re-published before. Corporate governance is an interdisciplinary subject of interest to scholars of history, economics, business history and law. In short this edition fits into the library collection of any institution concerned with history or finance.******

There are also copies of some of the letters sent out to various individuals and corporate heads. There are also some SIGNED typed notes, letters and hand written notes from William Zellerbach regarding various donations and letters received in response to the appeal for donations. In addition there are letters from JOHN PAUL, the Director of the UNCF Northern California Campaign, asking William Zellerbach if he would agree to be Chairman of the 1970 campaign, and telling him that it would take little work on his part (i.e. all the form letters would be written and printed for him, needing only his signature), and telling him that his name as Chairman would be of great help. It is clear that William Zellerbach took his position seriously, personalizing some of the appeals, and suggesting names for solicitation. The 1970 Northern California UNCF Campaign goal was $300,000 (equal to approximately $2 million today). The archive contains: (1) 45 SIGNED LETTERS written TO William J. Zellerbach in response to his (as Chairman for 1970) appeal for donations to the United Negro College Fund. Many of these letters are stapled to their envelopes. A few of the letters have handwritten notes on them by Bill Zellerbach. (2) 5 SIGNED typed letters BY William Zellerbach TO John Paul, Director of the UNCF campaign. The letters are Zellerbach's letterhead. They relate to various matters of the campaign. (3) 9 letters, some carbon copies, some original, regarding the recruiting of William Zellerbach to be Chairman of the 1970 campaign, his acceptance the position, and his approval of the form letter to be sent out. (4) A couple draft documents with numerous handwritten notes on them regarding how donations are to be handled ( i.e. accepted, put into the bank, etc.) (5) And some unsigned copies of solicitation letters that had been sent to various executives. All the letters are in generally GOOD condition, showing various signs of handling, but all remain bright and fully legible. A couple of the draft documents concerning the handling of donations were pieced together in strips, they are browned and show glue stains. A wonderful look at the Corporate and Individual Philanthropy in Northern California in 1970. The SIGNATURES of many of the areas Movers and Shakers make this quite a rare artifact. The generosity (and sometimes the amazing lack of it) is quite interesting.
