Vol. XIII, no. 4 (May, 1921) of a monthly publication offering "current statistics, records and high and low prices of stocks and bonds of railroad, industrial, and mining corporations, also grain, cotton, coffee and provisions." The publisher advertised in contemporary magazines that copies of this "real help to investors" would be "furnished FREE by any investment house . . . on request," and the front wrapper of the present example identifies it as coming from Kurtz Brothers Bankers and Brokers at 1421 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA. There is a great deal here on the structure and value of many, many individual companies.
