Summary

The 1901 investment masterpiece from the bestselling author of Reminiscences of a Stock Operator The rarest and most-prized work published by Edwin Lefeacute;vre, Wall Street Stories is a delightful literary romp through the habits and customs of 19th century Wall Street. Now, this timeless work is being reissued in a fantastically lush new edition befitting this masterwork. In his distinctive and humorous style, Lefeacute;vre gives us a glimpse into the gilded age of Wall Street through fictional characters who are actually thinly veiled portraits of well-known investing personalities, such as James R. Keene, Elverton R. Chapman, Roswell Pettibone Flower, and Daniel Drew. With this republished edition, all those who read Lefeacute;vre's Reminiscences of a Stock Operator (Wiley, 2006) will be introduced to the work that launched Lefevre's literary career.
