LE FEUVRE, P.E. : THE BOOK OF THE CHRONICLES OF J. K. : OR THE BATTLE OF THE TAPES.

London : George Gregory & Co., [1894]. First edition. Spoof biblical account of the 1894 Stock Exchange battle with the “outside brokers” which led to the Exchange Telegraph Company being compelled to withdraw their price tape facilities from eighty-seven of these non-members. The Stock Exchange Committee awakes from its slumbers to find it is no longer the reign of Queen Anne. “Then said Softly unto himself, Surely, my brethren, the Brokers and Jobbers are mugs of the first water”. Interesting in being issued by George Gregory of Tokenhouse Buildings, Lothbury, known as the king of the outside brokers and notorious for his prolific advertising – a practice not permitted to actual members of the Exchange.
Long crown 4to (192 x 251mm). (22)pp. Illustrations throughout. Original pictorial ribbon-tied wrappers; a little fingered, slightly split, mildly worn and lightly frayed, but a reasonable copy of a scarce and ephemeral survival. Just a single copy (British Library) located in the world’s major libraries.
