Description:
Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1912. Louis Bachelier was a French mathematician credited with being the first person to model the stochastic process now called Brownian motion, which was part of his PhD thesis The Theory of Speculation. His thesis, which discussed the use of Brownian motion to evaluate stock options, is historically the first paper to use advanced mathematics in the study of finance. Thus, Bachelier is considered a pioneer in the study of financial mathematics and stochastic processes. His systematic use of the concept of continuity in probabilistic modeling was, he felt, his major contribution to science. He defined Brownian motion predating Einstein by five years and discussed the use of Brownian motion to evaluate stock options. Historically, he was the first person to use advanced mathematics in the study of finance and is considered a pioneer in the study of financial mathematics.

London: J. Johnson, 1803. Large octavo, 10 volumes. Bound in full contemporary calf. Gilt titles and tooling to the spine, edges speckled. Frontispiece of Francis Bacon in volume one. With the early armorial bookplate of J. Lawson Whalley and the modern bookplate of Elmer Holmes Bopst, namesake of New York University's Bopst Library. In very good condition. I have taken all knowledge to be my province,’ Bacon declared He held to his course, if not ‘beyond the utmost bound of human thought,’ at least to the uttermost edge discernible in his day— and that, too, in every department of intellectual activity. Bacon’s day was, perhaps, the latest moment in history when anything like omniscience was within the limits of human attainment; even in his day, Bacon’s was, perhaps, the only mind that could achieve it" (Winterich, 205-6).

Description:
New York: Scribner, Armstrong and Co, 1873. First edition of this "undying classic" (J.M. Keynes). Octavo, original cloth. In near fine condition. First editions are scarce, especially in this condition. The English precursor to Wall Street, London's Lombard Street is the original district of finance and the birthplace of the money market. Fast-paced and highly-charged, it is a hotbed of financial activity whose impact is felt not just nationally, but globally. Though similar in many ways to its American counterpart, this "unequalled fund of floating money" nevertheless possesses a character all its own, the essence of which was brilliantly captured more than a century ago in Lombard Street. "Walter Bagehot was a great economist and a great writer-though there is a question as to which was the greater. Lombard Street, first published in 1873, is more than ever timely in the age of Asian financial flu, Long-Term Capital Management, problems in Russia, Brazil, and on the horizon elsewhere.
