The Book of Daniel Drew - 1910 First Edition
From a time when Wall Street was accessible by horse and a new issue of stock only required a printing press, this is the "autobiography" of an unrepentant participant in the golden era of robber barons. Based upon Drew's written recollections found after his death, this book covers Drew's entire life; from his cattle driving days, where he claims to have coined the phrase "watered stock", through his lifelong competition with Cornelius Vanderbilt and his partnerships with Jim Fisk and Jay Gould, to his final days, when he had lost his entire fortune. Some personal notes of the book pasted inside the cover. Solid binding. 419 pages, red cloth binding, George H. Doran is the publisher on this book with the copyright Doubleday, Page & Company.
