Rare centennial publication with an illustrated history of the New York Stock Exchange.
Centennial publication comprising a list of officers and committee members, a 9-page list of members, an anonymous 30-page illustrated “History of the New York Stock Exchange” from its origins in 1792 (with list of past presidents), with the balance of the volume being illustrated advertisements. These include brokerage firms such as Drexel, Morgan, Spencer Trask and August Belmont, as well as banks (Manhattan Company, Chemical National Bank, Bank of America) and other companies (such as Manning's Yacht Agency).
The anonymous author of the History of the New York Stock Exchange observes, "The New York Stock Exchange is indeed one of the greatest bulwarks against panics that the business community could have."
Professional conservation to a few paper flaws, mostly in margins (dampstaining to first 12 and last 18 leaves; one leaf with old tear costing a small portion of text).
