Reminiscences of a Stock Operator

By Edwin LeFevre

New York: George H. Doran Company, 1923. Decorative Cloth. Very Good. The very scarce 1923 correct 1st edition of this landmark in Wall Street literature, with the George H. Doran colophon AND the roman numeral "I" on the copyright page. Widely viewed as a fictionalized treatment of the legendary investor and trader Jesse Livermore, Edwin LeFevre's "Reminiscences of a Stock Operator" is not only considered a cornerstone in any serious economics library but remains one of the top-selling financial books of all time. This, the true 1st issue in its tan/light brown cloth, remains especially elusive. This copy has held up nicely as well: Solid and VG, with blindstamped titling along the front panel, bordered by decorative blindstamped flourishes. At the spine additional titling, with traces of the original gilt within the lettering. Very light spotting near the fore-edges, otherwise crisp and sound. And internally very clean, with no writing or markings of any kind. Thick octavo, in its orignal incarnation one of the most prized titles in the world of 20th century economics.
