First edition, first impression. Sir Richard William Barnes Clarke (1910-1975) journalist and civil servant. At the time of publication Clarke was working at the Financial News, later amalgamated with the Financial Times, where his most lasting achievement was to devise the ordinary share index - still, as the FT index, the principal measure of its kind. "Not surprisingly for one of his literary talents Clarke's published work was extensive. He wrote numerous articles in learned journals; his more substantial works included The Socialisation of Iron and Steel (1936), under the pseudonym Ingot" (ODNB).
