“A SLIGHT HUNK OF SOMETHING FOR NOTHING”
SULLIVAN, Edward Dean. Sold Out! New York: Vanguard, (1929). Octavo, original yellow cloth, original dust jacket. $950.
First edition of this lively contemporary exposé of Wall Street’s Black Friday, “one of the most tragic and disjointed days in the history of American finance.”
Newspaperman Edward Dean Sullivan, whose investigative books on Chicago crime earned him praise for writing "better than ten boatloads of visiting Englishmen—all Oxford graduates" (New Yorker), here offers a biting analysis of the Wall Street Crash of 1929, when the nation was caught in a "terrific blow-off and pay-off" and even Broadway was "just a great white wail."
Book with interior generally quite nice and only slight rubbing and faint pinpoint foxing to cloth. Dust jacket with mild toning and shallow chipping to edges. An extremely good copy. Scarce.
