Description

    Theodore Dreiser. The Financier. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1912.

    First edition. Octavo. 779 pages.

    Publisher's light blue cloth, stamped in gold and blue. A bright, crisp copy with very light rubbing to bottom spine edge. Dust jacket is toned along the edges and spine, with light edge wear and chipping at the corners and spine ends. There is a pulled area on the lower portion of the spine and a discoloration near the front fold. A better than very good copy.

    First volume of Dreiser's Trilogy of Desire. He based the main character, Frank Cowperwood, on Charles Yerkes. Yerkes was a Chicago streetcar tycoon whose ultimate goal was total control of the city's streetcar lines. Known for his use of blackmail and bribery to achieve his goal, he was never able to totally monopolize the Chicago public transportation system.
