"Slow transatlantic shipping"? Never heard of it unless they're rowing

in 40-50 days!) Shipping these days is a real cut-throat business and a 
slow trip across the Atlantic is unprofitable unless it's a cruise ship.

Also I've never really understood why is it necessary to get the book

it may be a small, or even one-man, business. And for what it's worth my 
wife's ex-brother-in-law works for a medium sized Cornish print firm and 
he's never heard of the company.
