Richard Wyckoff (1873-1934) is one of the legends of Wall Street. At the turn of the twentieth century, he was tireless in promoting, publishing, and writing about the stock market. His book Studies in Tape Reading is one of the earliest works on technical analysis. He founded The Ticker Magazine, which subsequently became The Magazine Of Wall Street, and promoted many authors including Selden, Babson, and Crowell through Ticker publishing. His autobiography Wall Street Ventures and Adventures Through Forty Years reminisces about 'The Street' and the great traders: Livermore, Keene, Bet-A-Million Gates, and bankers like JP Morgan.

During the 1930s, and 40s, many technicians produced stock market courses. Wyckoff's along with Rhea's, Gann's, Quinn's and Orline Foster's are probably the best known. They were usually roneo'd (an early form of reproduction) and were produced in very limited numbers. They were offered to a select group of clients, who would pay hundreds of dollars for what was considered a unique glimpse into the technical mysteries of the market written by a living master. In this case, the 2-volume course, beautifully bound in tan morocco, was not offered for sale, but had to be leased by a prospective purchaser. There were several editions, due to the necessity of updating every few years. This was the most complete as it was the last and final version, published in 1937, three years after Wyckoff's death. His company had been bought out by Robert E Stanlaws, who continued to offer original Wyckoff material. Few editions of this course, or any others have survived. Rare.

Subscribers edition; 2 volumes; 4to (28 x 25 cm); 300pp. of type-written yellow paper, divided in numerous sections, instructions for use inserted loose in pockets of both volumes; ring bound in contemporary soft dark brown calf, gilt metal clasps, subscriber's name gilt stamped on upper cover, an excellent example.
