THE FINANCIER: A Novel. Theodore Dreiser. THE FINANCIER: A Novel.
New York: Boni & Liveright, 1927. A completely revised edition of his third book. INSCRIBED, "For Brills son Edmund from Theodore Dreiser 1928." The first of the trilogy on Frank Cowperwood, a financier and businessman during an epic period of American history, from the Civil War through the end of the century. Dreiser based the character on Charles T. Yerkes, a traction magnate who had a well-documented and colorful career as an organizer of companies, an art collector and womanizer. Dreiser is still considered a trailblazer in our literature for his honest treatment of American life and the vagaries of human nature. The latter, of course, caused him many problems with the critics of the time. The book is a little cocked and cover has a small mark on bottom right corner, otherwise very good to fine, clean, bright copy. Lacking dust jacket. INSCRIBED BY DREISER.
