1901 Wall Street Stories Edwin Lefevre 1st Edition/1st Impression ~ Stock Market
Wall Street Stories Edwin Lefevre 1901 First Edition / First Impression A lovely high grade example of the Lefevre's first book with light wear, bright gilt on the cover and spine and a short gift inscription on the front blank paper. The pages are clean and the binding is tight. First impressions of this title are uncommon, especially in nice condition. The book that launched Edwin Lefevre's literary career, Wall Street Stories is considered by many to be his most memorable work, second only to Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, his classic fictionalization of the life of Jesse Livermore. Published to great critical acclaim in 1901, Wall Street Stories is a literary romp through the habits and customs of Wall Street. Like all of Lefevre's fiction, it is firmly rooted in the facts as he knew them both as a top financial journalist and a successful investor. Many of the fictional characters in the stories are thinly-veiled portraits of well-known Wall Street operators such as James R. Keene, Jay Gould, Elverton R. Chapman, Roswell Pettibone Flower, and Daniel Drew. Names as familiar to the public in their day as Warren Buffet, George Soros, and Julian Robertson are today. But the charm of Wall Street Stories isn't just in their ability to convey a sense of life in a bygone era. It comes from the timeless insights they offer into human nature warped in the crucible of the stock market. Each of these witty tales of still resonate with poignancy and simple authority.
