The New York Banker & Broker’s Manual of the New York Stock,Produce,Mining,Cotton,Petroleum Exchanges for 1880-81 was originally published in 1881 and though this is a scanned reproduction of not the best quality I think because of the original quality of the book scanned? Anyway, this is definitely a book to check out if the history of Wall Street and the New York Bankers and Brokers are of interest to you.
