A detailed biography of the colorful financier (1821-1905), whose firm marketed the huge Civil War loans of the Federal Government; whose marketing of its bonds enabled the Northern Pacific Railroad to expand to the Dakotas; and whose firm's eventual closing precipitated the Panic of 1873. A handsome set in the finest possible condition.
