Book Description

The Stock Exchange has been described as the mart of the world; as the nerve-centre of the politics and finances of nations; as the barometer of their prosperity and adversity; and as the bottomless pit of London, worse than all the hells. This book, first published in 1904, examines the London Stock Exchange in its purest sense, as the market for stocks and shares.
