This work most notable for Chapter XXI entitled 'A Conclave on Jekyl Island' which states: "There was an occasion, near the close of 1910, when I was as secretive, indeed, as furtive as any conspirator... I do not feel it any exaggeration to speak of our secret expedition to Jekyl Island as the occasion of the actual conception of what eventually became the Federal Reserve System." - page 210. Moderate wear to book. Binding intact. Slight lean to spine. Gift greetings, dated 1935, upon front free endpaper.
