Other People's Money and How the Bankers Use It

by Louis D Brandeis

Condition: VeryGood/Good

Frederick A Stokes, 1914. Hardcover . VeryGood/Good. Burgandy cloth boards with gilt lettering & decorative device on front panel. First edition indicated by 1914 on CR page, no date on title page. The DJ advertises one book published in 1911, and two books published in 1913. Owner's inscription from 1920 (Julia E. Banner, a labor organizer in Bellingham, Washington). A now classic work, which importance is underscored only by the author's later impact as Supreme Court Justice. Clean text with solid binding. Boards have very faint moisture stains, except for bottom of front cover at which point a nickel-sized light stain is visible. The jacket is virtually unheard of for sale. It shows dampstain to bottom spineward quadrant of front panel and edge of spine. One stain, possibly rust, diagonally across half of the front panel. Other soiling & light chipping, but all text is legible and I make it sound worse than it is. Jacket has a printed price of $1.00 on spine & front panel, but stickers of $1.25 over printed price.
