Van Dyke, James Edward.  The investor's pocket manual. New York: The Financial Press, 1921. 16mo (15.5 cm, 6.1"). 272 pp.
$500.00

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.
        => These ephemeral guidebooks are not widely institutionally held in the U.S., although a different, quarterly publication of the same title (published by E.A. Pierce & Co.) appears to be somewhat more common.

Publisher's printed yellow paper wrappers; creased and lightly soiled, with inked date on spine and pencilled annotations on back wrapper. Text block just starting to pull away from wrappers. Pages age-toned; three leaves separated. => A useful snapshot of the American economy in the spring of 1921.  (37198)   Please RESHELVE This.
