An Invaluable Treasure : A History of the TSB - Michael Moss & Iain Russell

Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1994, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with the expected associated abrasion to the dust wrapper which is lightly spotted on the reverse. Small pen mark (not remainder) to the fore and bottom edge of the text block. Boards lightly dusty. Text complete, clean and tight but the heavier art paper has become a little tacky in places.

Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “The TSB group traces its origins back almost two hundred years to the beginning of the nineteenth century when in the small Dumfriesshire village of Ruthwell the Reverend Henry Duncan founded the first savings bank in 1810. Shortly afterwards savings banks were established throughout the United Kingdom by like-minded people who advocated the virtues of thrift in an age when there was little public provision for the vicissitudes of life. From the 1840s their funds were secured by the government, hence the name trustee savings banks.
