THE EARLY MOVERS AND SHAKERS OF AMERICAN FINANCE. 

PREFACE:
"HERE IS A BRILLIANT PATCH OF AMERICA. SWIFTLY AND WITH DEFT STROKES MR. DIES ETCHES THE LIVES OF FOURTEEN COLORFUL CHARACTERS- GREAT AND NEAR GREAT - ACTORS IN THE QUICK DRAMA OF WESTERN FINANCE...INDUSTRIALISTS...CAPITALISTS...SPECULATORS...SOME LIVING GLORIOUSLY AND DYING FAMOUSLY, OTHERS RISING TO DIZZY HEIGHTS AND CRASHING TO THE DEPTHS.

FABULOUS FORTUNES TUMBLE, AS PAGES ARE TURNED, IN AN UNPLANNED DISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH. WE SEE THE SENIOR ARMOUR, BIG, FIGHTING, TEA-DRINKING BUILDER OF THE WEST, BALLOONING HIS POWER. AMASSING WEALTH, WEALTH THAT LATER TAKES FLIGHT TO THE TUNE OF A MILLION A DAY FOR A HUNDRED DAYS. WE WATCH THE RISE AND FALL OF THE INCREDIBLE INSULL, AND THE BLINK AT THE COLLAPSE OF HIS CYCLONIAN EMPIRE. WE SEE THE DAUNTLESS ALEXANDER LEGGE BATTLE WITH HOOVER MILLIONS TO STEM THE ONRUSH OF ECONOMIC RUIN. THROUGH THE PAGES STRUT SUCH ALMOST LEGENDARY FIGURES AS BET-A-MILLION GATES , JOE LEITER, AND DOC CRAWFORD...CONTRASTED BY THE CALM CAPITALIST SPECULATORS, PATTEN AND CUTTEN, AND THE DARING GENIUSES, HOWELL, LIVERMORE AND OTHERS.


HERE IS VIVID HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY WITH THE SWEEP OF FICTION - DRAMATIC TALES FROM LA SALLE STREET, THE WESTERN POWERHOUSE OF FINANCE, THE STREET OF ADVENTURE."
 
 
FIVE YEARS AFTER PUBLISHING STREET OF ADVENTURE EDWARD JEROME DIES WENT ON TO WRITE THE PREFACE FOR JESSE LIVERMORE'S HOW TO TRADE IN STOCKS.  LATER HE WROTE BEHIND THE WALL STREET CURTAIN , THE PLUNGER AND THE TALE OF THE WHEAT PIT. 

BOOK IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. INTERIOR IS PRISTINE WITH VERY SLIGHT DISCOLORATION OF PAGES & ORIGINAL OWNER'S NAME ON INNER COVER. DUST JACKET HAS SOME WEAR/CHIPS,  ESPECIALLY AROUND EDGES. COVER IS BRIGHT WITH SOME SHELF WEAR AT CORNERS AND EDGES.
OVERALL A GREAT COPY OF AN EXTREMELY RARE BOOK -
A FANTASTIC ADDITION TO YOUR COLLECTION.
 
WE ACQUIRED THIS A FEW YEARS AGO AT A LOCAL ESTATE SALE.  AFTER SOME RESEARCH WE REALIZED HOW RARE IT IS AND SENT SOME PHOTOS TO ONE OF THE LEADING AUCTION HOUSES.  THIS IMPOSSIBLE TO COME BY INVESTMENT BOOK IS AN EXCELLENT INVESTMENT.  ASKING PRICE IS A FRACTION OF RETAIL POTENTIAL.

DON'T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY.
YOU MAY NEVER FIND A COPY OF THIS GREAT BOOK, IN SUCH GOOD SHAPE,
WITH THE ORIGINAL DUST JACKET !
