Riguardo questo articolo

In the speculative world of 1929, the Solloway-Mills company was buying and selling speculative stocks to the Canadian public. They had offices in major Canadian cities - Vancouver, Toronto and Calgary, inter alia. To cover the chance of a `run' on their positions, they SOLD SHORT the very stocks they were buying. That is until Premier J.N. Brownlee got wind of it !! What followed was a major decision in Canadian law. This is Solloway's side of the discussion. It begins with general commentary on Canadian politics, government, financial risk etc. and ends with fraud trial details. In between is the specific business practice of the company that made it a VERY active brokerage. A few b/w photos illus. the text - e.g Toronto skyline 1933 opp. page 96. 223 total pages. Cond : Navy blue boards w/ gilt lettering on face and spine. Rubbed or worn - general. Worn also at top edge. Lightly foxed throughout. Binding decent, if lightly shaken. Front board bowed. No names, tears, nor creases. Minor damp stain to front end-paper. Minor marginalia in pencil. Colours bright. No dust jacket - as issued ? EXCELLENT reading copy of a `hard-to-find' book.

Our business was particularly valuable to the railway companies, both ._._._. .". Codice inventario libreria 007674
