Condition: Near Fine — in Near Fine Dustwrapper. Small promotional sticker to the reverse of the dust wrapper.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The story of Harry Chandler is a true ‘rags to riches’ tale. From the poverty of London’s East End in the 1920s and 1930s life has brought him success and the trappings of affluence — a penthouse in Park Lane, expensive cars and yachts, villas abroad. However there is more to the Harry Chandler story than the making of money. There is the building up of a business which now has a turnover of £10 millions a year plus, not from central London or a chain of offices all over the country, but from a single office at Upminster, in Essex — a trade in package holidays abroad that began when a young Harry Chandler and his best friend embarked on a cycle tour of Germany in 1934.
