This is a fascinating book that tracks the growth of American industry using examples of stock certificates. It provides good commentary on the way stock certificates developed from a   simple record of ownership to a statement about the company and its prospects. The need to prevent counterfeiting is also an important factor in stock certificate design.


The highlight of these is the complex engravings produced by the American Banknote company. They gave stock certificates the same status as money, and the same protection against copying. The reproductions in this book are excellent.


For those interested in collecting old stock certificates this book is an excellent introduction to the area.
