Selected Speeches and Reports on Finance and Taxation, from 1859 to 1878
D. Appleton and Company New York: D. Appleton and Company. 1879. First. First edition. Half morocco and marbled paper covered boards. Rubbed at the extremities, and a small piece of leather peeled on the rear board, else a near fine copy. Inscribed by John Sherman to leading American banker, financier and philanthropist George F. Baker, who provided much of the initial funding for the Harvard Business School. Laid in are two Autograph Letters Signed by Sherman to Baker. The first letter, two pages, is undated and asks if Baker can provide copies of this book, then no longer available, as "I understand you have some copies taken by the Syndicate then selling U.S. Bonds." The second, a single page dated January 5, 1895, tells Baker not to send copies as Sherman intends to reprint the volume. John Sherman, the brother of William Tecumseh Sherman, was a powerful Senator from Ohio during and after the Civil War. He served as Secretary of State and also as Secretary of the Treasury where he was the principal author of the Sherman Antitrust Act. A nice association. .
