1884 Mysteries of Wall Street 1st Ed. Guide to Speculation ~ Stock Market ~ Rare
1884. The Mysteries of Wall Street A Complete Guide to Speculation in Stocks William E. Samson 1884 First Edition The first comprehensive guide about speculation & trading in stocks and options, published in the United States. Prior to the publication of this title, most books about Wall Street fell into two different categories. The first was a historical view of Wall Street and its well known operators. The second was thin softcover pamphlets which were often distributed by bucket shops and brokerage houses. These booklets did contain a few pages of basic information, but their main purpose was to attract customers. With nearly 200 pages, The Mysteries of Wall Street was a historic first. Rare and collectible. The OCLC locates only 5 copies. A very fine collectible copy of this investment classic, with light wear to the spine. Decorative endpapers, tight hinges and a very bright cover vignette of a bull charging a bear. A couple of pages have a light smudge mark, otherwise, nice and clean. Please view my other listings. Thank you! [Attributes: First Edition]
