Williams, Washington, D.C., 1st May 1914." For 18 years, Gardner F. Williams managed De Beers Consolidated Mines, which at one time produced 95% of the world's diamonds. De Beers' pre-eminence was aided by the fact that Williams (a trained mining engineer) had a technical understanding of the mining process. This is the revised, enlarged, updated and additionally illustrated edition (first published in 1902), published in the year that Williams retired to America. Bookseller Inventory # 63028
