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.

They must be red and not taller than eight inches.' This happened in 1932 but I can still reemember the expression on the faces of the other customers. They stared in horror at this airy, unconcerned cad, who contented himself by swinging a cane and adding inconsequentially: 'It's for my yacht'." Light creasing to one corner otherwise fine. From the collection of the illustrator Claude Smith with his penciled signature.Typed note from the famous Charing Cross Road booksellers Harold Mortlake & Co. ("We do not know if you are interested in Lawrence Durrell ..."). IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN LAWRENCE DURRELL.
