Stock Market Theory and Practice -- Rare 1st Printing in Dust Jacket
B.C. Forbes 1930 - The true first printing of this important book, with no additional printings listed on the copyright page. Near-fine in dark blue boards with a touch of rubbing; interior clean and tight. In a very good plus dust jacket with very minor wear to top edges (two tiny closed tears) and a small soiled area at top corner of rear panel. A large volume: 885 pages including 105 illustrations, along with many charts and diagrams (three folding). A beautiful copy. Richard Schabacker is widely considered to be the father of technical analysis. Throughout the 1920s and 1930s he was appointed to highly prestigious editorial positions with influential publications, including being the youngest Financial Editor of Forbes Magazine and Editor of The Analyst, a weekend section of the New York Times. However, Schabacker's reputation was not confined to his expertise as a technical analyst--he was also a highly respected market forecaster and a successful trader. He wrote three large books prior to his death at the young age of 36, and Stock Market Theory and Practice was his first. Most of the book is devoted to providing behind the scenes information on the role of stockbrokers, the key stock exchanges, how traders' orders reach exchanges, and how brokers handle orders. The remainder of the book leaves no doubt that the author was a pioneer in the field of technical analysis, with Schabacker documenting important charting patterns in great detail.
