The Times / Financial and Commercial Supplement
London, The Times Newspaper, 1904 to 1906. Hardcover.folio,Folio size volume bound in 3/4 leather over dark 'pebbled' cloth,This periodical, which began in 1904, was issued weekly with The Times newspaper. This offering begins with the first issue, No. 1, July 18, 1904 and concludes with No. 129, December 31, 1906. Each issue contains from six to twelve pages of detailed financial, banking, and commercial information. There is a comprehensive Index for the period July 18, 1904 to Dec. 25, 1905, and another such Index for the full year of 1906. Such indices will be invaluable reference tools for scholars. Each issue normally contains a leading article, followed by a number of special articles, and regular columns on the money market, the stock exchange, freights and shipping, and the commercial markets; as well as the stock and share list, and summaries of colonial foreign finance and trade (including Canada and the United States). Later issues contain The Times Financial and Business Directory, as well as many advertisments and Notices of share offerings and stock conversions. The text is printed on newsprint stock, which has now browned a bit. The binding of this large, heavy, volume has been allowed in the past to dry, and hence the spine has partially detached at the front joint. The binding is still quite dry and must be handled with care. However, the contents are clean and unmarked. Given the ephemeral nature of such publications, it is quite unusual to find such a complete run, and in such good condition (the binding notwithstanding). We would ask that, if a purchase is contemplated, you first enquire as to shipping costs and options, due to the weight and size of this volume. An article in the Feb. 20, 1905, issue on 'The Compulsory Working of Patents' has been attributed to Winston Churchill.
