The second section has its own title-page, reading: To the Readers of Coin’s Financial School. An Answer, and imprint as follows: “Published by S. K. Donavin, of Columbus, Ohio, 1895.” Apparently inscribed by Gen. John Beatty on flyleaf. Good plus; wear and soiling to boards; heavy dust to edges; interior clean. Gen. John Beatty (1828–1914) was a civil war General from Ohio. In this book he addresses tariffs and free trade, the causes of the panic of 1893 and rails against Coin’s Financial School. “The fact is, Mr. Harvey writes like one who had been an unsuccessful speculator in a silver mining stock, and who now seeks to attribute his losses to something besides his own defective judgment.” (pg. 58). “Those who look upon the author of ‘Coin’s Financial School’ as a heaven-born financier, and hence regard his statements as accurate and his conclusions infallible, have indeed good reason to tremble with anxiety and alarm.” (pg. 58). Provides further insight into the Coin’s debate from the perspective of a civil war General. Scarce. At the time of cataloguing, no other copies for sale and not widely held at libraries.
