New York: A.L. Burt, (1912).
Hardcover. Early reprint edition. Neat owner name (dated in 1914), some foxing, mostly to the foredge, else near fine in very good or better dustwrapper with a modest stain on the front panel, some tiny tears, and age-toning, and with different jacket art from the publisher's original edition. The first volume in Dreiser's epic trilogy of big city American business and politics which follows the rise, fall, and rise again of the driven and unscrupulous broker Frank Algernon Cowperwood. A classic chronicle of American ambition for wealth, power, and social standing whose themes strongly anticipated Sinclair Lewis, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and William Faulkner. Even this reprint is very scarce in dustwrapper.
