Reflections and recollections of Paul Warburg [1868 - 1932], considered by many to have been the main driver behind the establishment of the Federal Reserve System in 1913. Warburg was reluctant to publish this work until, in the autumn of 1928, "I became convinced that the Federal Reserve System had entered upon a gravely critical period in its career, and that for the discussion about to ensue it was highly important that certain vital facts in the origin and growth of the System be adequately understood." - viii [v1]. Gilt lettering upon spines. Average wear to publisher's navy cloth. Bookplate of prior owner, a Dutch doctor, inside each front board. Laid in is the original handwritten purchase receipt, dated 1931, issued by an Amsterdam book dealer. Front free endpaper of volume 2 neatly removed. Bindings and hinges intact. A sound copy of this essential chronicle of early twentieth century American central bank history. Masui p.1431.
