Anarchy meets the market. In his 1934 biography of P. J. Prudhon, D. W. Brogan discusses the current work: 'In the meantime [Prudhon] put together a pot boiler called The Manual Of The Stock Exchange Speculator. Prudhon usually had the highest opinion of his books while he was writing them, but grew disillusioned after they were published, but he reversed this history in the case of the manual. Most of it was the work of Duchene, but as the book sold well, The manual is chiefly devoted to describing various companies then quoted on the Paris bourse. The manual is a very characteristic work. Prudhon displays his scepticism about railways, his dislike of Saint-Simonisto who are both capitalists and Jews, his belief in the immense possibilities of mutuality and the reform of credit'.

Fifth edition, 8vo., 511pp., 8 pages of ads at end, original yellow printed wrappers, an excellent copy.
