B00085HVUY vi, [2], 312 p. Index. Black and white photographic plates including frontis portrait of Vanderlip who rose from humble beginnings to become head of National City Bank. This work most notable for Chapter XXI entitled 'A Conclave on Jekyl Island' which states: "There was an occasion, near the close of 1910, when I was as secretive, indeed, as furtive as any conspirator... I do not feel it any exaggeration to speak of our secret expedition to Jekyl Island as the occasion of the actual conception of what eventually became the Federal Reserve System." - page 210. Moderate wear to book. Binding intact. Slight lean to spine. Gift greetings, dated 1935, upon front free endpaper. Above-average wear to dust jacket, now in mylar, which lacks a two-inch piece from bottom of spine. Includes news clipping detailing the settlement of Vanderlip's estate. A worthy copy of this historic reference.
