The Successful Merchant. Sketches of the Life of Mr. Samuel Budgett

Author: William Arthur
Publisher: Bemrose & Sons
Publish Date: 1886

One of the finest biographies ever written. We have heard mercantile men take exception to the methods of Samuel Budgett; but we believe they did so with the view of excusing their own faults and diminishing the pressure which his example exercised upon their consciences. To us he seems to have been the model of a Christian man of business. This new edition will we doubt not command a fresh band of readers, for it is not only gracious but amusing, instructive, fascinating. Young men just commencing business life should have this volume presented to them; it may guide them right at a critical moment and secure honor and success for the rest of their lives. Long as this book has been before the public, it has lost none of its freshness; and we congratulate the publishers upon having such a live book in their catalog.
