X.Y.Z. of Wall Street by Arthur Howard

Arthur Platt Howard's preface says it all. "At some period during every man's life he thinks he can make money by speculating on Wall Street. To such this book will prove valuable, not that it shows how to make money, but, rather, how to limit the losses." Here are timeless words of wisdom for any aspiring investors, charmingly presented in the form of a rhyming A-to-Z book. A stylish illustration accompanies each letter of the alphabet.

About the Author

The son of successful New York jeweller Joseph P. Howard, Arthur Howard may have been raised in a prosperous atmosphere, and developed expensive tastes, but he wasn't initially as successful at making money as his father. In fact, the bankrupt Arthur left New York in 1908 to seek his fortune in Boston, and then Salem, Massachusetts. And he found it. Arthur became the editor of the Salem Dispatch, ran for the town's top office, and was elected Mayor of Salem in 1910. He tells his colorful story in "The Man Who Bucked Up," published in 1912.
