About This Item

Garden City, New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, 1930. 1930 date at title page. Stated: "Copyright, 1925 by George H. Doran Company; Copyright, 1924 by the Curtis Publishing Company; The Making of a Stockbroker, Printed in the United States of America." Rare near fine early printing in original wrapper from Doubleday, Doran & Company. Olive green cloth boards, black spine titles, Doubleday Doran at heel, with decoration, light shelf wear. Deckled pages near fine, bright; no writing. String-bind fine, square; hinges intact. Original wrapper, light shelf wear, moderate toning; protected in new clear sleeve. Light green matte wrapper features black cover and spine titles, with summary excerpts, blurbs, and publisher to front panel. Interesting ephemeral "statement" or printed receipt from Doubleday Doran set in with unique type: "Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc. Garden City, New York. A. H. Welch, Box 74, Stow, Mass., No. 30757, Secrets of Wall Street." Rare sharp 1930 printing in same wrapper. This is Edwin Lefevre's infamous biography of John K. Wing, a senior partner of Bronson and Barnes, a major Boston stockbrokerage, whose approach to investing and business provided a contrast to Jesse Livermore, the based subject of Reminescences of a Stock Operator. LeFèvre, well known for the insightful finance novel, "Reminiscences of a Stock Operator," returns with this volume containing the story behind the making of a stockbroker. LeFèvre's story follows John K. Wing, the senior resident partner of Bronson and Barnes - a Boston firm which had risen to the top rank of stock commission houses in the early 1900's. In contrast to "Reminiscences of Stock Operator" big-time trader story, this story examines the nature of high finance brokerage house. The change is never in the eternal verities but in the point of view, which in turn dictates the fashion that finds a new and easier way. Pertinent, timeless observations. LeFèvre also penned "Wall Street Stories," "Simonetta," and "Sampson Rock of Wall Street," among several others. Profits are made in bull and bear markets - but especially in volatile ones. 341 pages. Insured post.. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Book.
