    Description

    "Fear keeps you from making as much money as you ought to."

    Edwin Lefèvre. Reminiscences of a Stock Operator. New York: George H. Doran Company, [1923].

    First edition, with colophon containing "GHD" on copyright page. Octavo. 299 pages.

    Publisher's light brown cloth stamped in gilt and blind. Gilt titles on spine dulled. Some light soiling to boards. Minor wear to spine ends. A few leaves carelessly opened. Due to a printing error, four leaves are blank: pages 224/225, 228/229, 232/233, 236/237. With "Max Goldberg/Fargo N. Dak." on front free endpaper, with two rubberstamps reading "Private Library of Max Goldberg" - one on the front free endpaper, the other on the rear pastedown. Goldberg amassed great wealth as a grain dealer in North Dakota. A very good copy.

    A thinly-fictionalized biography of famed stock trader Jesse Livermore, this book quickly became a classic and is the most sought-after and most widely-read investment book ever published. Its insights into the art of trading and speculating continue to inspire new generations of investors almost ninety years after its initial publication. As Lefèvre writes: "The game does not change and neither does human nature."
