This book examines the New River Company. It provides an interesting analysis of the fascinating legal problems encountered starting at the time of the company's inception at the beginning of the seventeenth century to its municipalization and conversion to a property company at the start of the twentieth century. The problems of water supply, hygiene, and general business issues are looked in a concentrated format.
