London,  HMSO, 1897

folio [31x20cm]. ppxl 1004

a very good copy in a modern quarter calf and marbled paper boards binding

an important Parliamentary Inquiry into the state of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution at the end of the 19th century. The Committee was convened following a series of complaints and charges over several years in regard to the general and financial management of the Institution

A very detailed enquiry, including over 800 replies to questions sent out by the committee, and a mass of first-hand evidence, established that most of the charges were unfounded, although improvements could be implemented. The committee also recommended that the Institution should remain as a voluntary organisation, privately funded, and not be taken over by the state. This volume contains the complete report, proceedings and minutes of evidence and extensive appendices, over 1000 pages in all
