I... had always found folly extremely easy-but successful stock speculation infinitely easier. -from The Panic of the Lion This collection of four interrelated short stories relates the doings of the Plunder Recovery Syndicate, a group of men who take it upon themselves to relieve financial villains of their extravagant wealth. Satirical and provocative, these tales are as fresh and entertaining today, in chaotic economic times, as they surely were when first published in 1912. Also available from Cosimo Classics: Lefevres The Golden Flood. American journalist EDWIN LEFEVRE (1871-1943) also authored the short fiction collected in Wall Street Stories (1901), the novel Sampson Rock of Wall Street (1906), and the based-on-fact Reminiscences of a Stock Operator (1923).
