Instructions for Smooth Reading

Good explanation of how stock exchanges, particularly the NYSE, operated early in the 20th Century. Most of the terminology still is in use today, and many of the explanations remain illuminating and useful.

(The author's comments about "short selling" should be read by a certain automobile manufacturer who criticizes short sellers: a "short sale" occurs when someone sells something he does not own and cannot immediately deliver ... such as an automobile that won't be available for a year or two.)

The only "illustrations" are the printer's and publisher's logos, so reading any version will be equally useful. The online versions, listed below, contain links for footnotes and within the Index. Thank you for helping with this project.
