    The Fall Of The House Of Hutton by Carpenter, Donna Sammons and John Feloni

    New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1989. Robert M. Fomon was a man dedicated to E.F. Hutton. He envisioned the firm's new, pink marble headquarters in Manhattan as a prominent symbol of the giant corporation that Hutton had become under his leadership. Everything about the building bespoke success. Unfortunately, by the end of 1987, when Bob Fomon's twenty-nine story memorial to his own achievement was finished, so was the firm. 'The Fall of the House of Hutton' untangles a web of intrigue unlike anything Wall Street has experienced in recent years. Hutton, one of the oldest and best-known names on Wall Street, did nor fall victim to a stock market crash or the industry's relentless drive toward consolidation. The end began with check-kiting...a scam to defraud large and small banks that almost gave the company interest-free loans..... A bright square copy....remainder mark to bottom edge. No ownership markings.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good.

    COBBETT'S PAPER AGAINST GOLD: CONTAINING THE HISTORY AND MYSTERY OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND, THE FUNDS, THE DEBT, THE SINKING FUND, THE BANK STOPPAGE, THE LOWERING AND THE RAISING OF THE VALUE OF PAPER-MONEY; AND SHEWING, THAT TAXATION, PAUPERISM, POVERTY, MISERY AND CRIMES HAVE ALL INCREASED, AND EVER MUST INCREASE, WITH A FUNDING SYSTEM by Cobbett, William

    [London: Printed by W. Molineux, Published by W. Cobbett, 1817. viii, [2]-470, [1 blank] pp. Printed in two columns per page, with each column counted as a page [as issued]. Bound in original paper-covered boards. Rather crudely rebacked with waste paper, else Very Good with light foxing. Cobbett's thesis is that "The Paper-Money System has mainly contributed towards our present miseries...In all countries, where a Paper-Money, that is to say, a paper which could not, at any moment, be converted into Gold and Silver, the consequence, first or last, always been great and general misery." To prove his point, Cobbett inquires "into the origin of money, how it acts upon the affairs of men, how prices depend upon its quantity, and how money itself is changed in its quantity and value." He then discusses the origin of the Bank and its Paper, "from their fatal birth." Much the same argument raged in the United States between Hamiltonians, who wished to expand credit extensions, and Jeffersonians, who were deeply suspicious of paper currency. This book comprises 32 letters originally written between 1810 and 1815, and originally published in Cobbett's Political Register. This is their first collection and separate publication.

    FEDERAL GOVERNMENT MONEY VS. BANK CURRENCY. LETTER FROM GEN. WM. BRINDLE, OF MUNCY, PA. TO THE HON. WM. H. WITTE by Brindle, William

    Philadelphia: Published by Samuel P. Town, 1874. Original printed wrappers with wrapper title, as issued. 8pp. Stitched. Light wear, Very Good. Brindle was a Democrat who had served with Franklin Pierce in the Mexican War. President Pierce appointed him Indian Land Agent in the Kansas Territory, at Lecompton. He resigned when Abraham Lincoln was elected President. A critic of Lincoln's war policies, Brindle was arrested at Lecompton in July 1862 and briefly detained. After his release, he returned home to Muncy, from which several years later he penned this critique of Witte's monetary proposals. Witte had been a Pennsylvania Congressman. Brindle supports placing U.S. Treasury Notes on a par with specie payments, and denies that payment of bondholders with such notes would constitute a repudiation of the federal debt. He emphasizes, in opposition to Witte, "JEFFERSON, MADISON AND CALHOUN IN FAVOR OF UNITED STATES TREASURY NOTES AND IN OPPOSITION TO BANKS OF ISSUE." This position of the Democratic Party, opposing a "Monied Tyranny" of Banks, has been Democratic dogma since its inception. OCLC 191278885 [1- AAS] as of November 2017.

    SIX LETTERS ON THE NECESSITY AND PRACTICABILITY OF A NATIONAL CURRENCY, AND THE PRINCIPLES AND MEASURES ESSENTIAL TO IT by Lord, Eleazar

    New York: Anson D.F. Randolph, 1862. Original printed wrappers, stitched. 53, [1 blank] pp. Very Good. Lord argues that "a uniform National currency is indispensable to the interests and welfare of the people." Congress ought to make Treasury notes legal tender. Lord had a roller-coaster career. Initially quite successful in business, he founded the Manhattan Fire Insurance Company, the New York Sunday School Society, the University of the City of New York and Auburn Theological Seminary, and was the first president of the New York & Erie Railroad. But he lost everything during the Panic of 1857. During the Civil War years, when he wrote this pamphlet, he was forced to depend on the kindness of relatives for his support. DAB's sketch of Lord's life notes that this pamphlet attracted the attention of the Lincoln Administration; William Seward consulted with him on national fiscal policy. FIRST EDITION. Sabin 42024.

    ADDRESS OF THE NATIONAL COMMITTEE OF THE NATIONAL GREENBACK-LABOR PARTY. THE FOLLOWING ADDRESS WAS ISSUED AND RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED BY THE MEETING HELD AT ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, MAY 23, 1882. TO THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES:.. by National Greenback-Labor Party

    [Washington, D.C.: Printed by Rufus H. Darby, Publisher of Greenback-Labor Documents., 1882. 3, [1 blank] pp. Folded to 6" x 9-1/4". Near Fine. This Party sought to unite farmers and other advocates of cheap money with the industrial laboring class, in opposition to the "national bank monopoly," "railroad monopolies," "telegraph monopolies," "land monopolies," and "the concentration of vast fortunes in the hands of a few men, who now exercise dangerous influence over our free institutions and threaten the liberties of the people." Seeking to unite blacks and whites on the basis of their similar economic condition, the Party blamed Republicans and Democrats for deliberately stoking the fires of racial hatred by "appeals to sectional and race prejudice, which should not be tolerated any longer among our people."
