This is the first full-length biography of John Julius Angerstein, who was a considerable figure in the City of London and far beyond during the period 1770-1820. With increasing wealth and influence, he supported and founded charities, collected art, and was later a shipowner who raised the long-term finance which helped the British Government fund the Napoleonic Wars. With no successors to carry on his business, his achievements and his friendships with well known figures have been mostly forgotten.
