A somewhat technical argument in favor of bimetallism, arguing that much of the then current economic woes were due to government indebtedness and improper valuation of silver against gold. While bimetallism was abandoned by the US government in 1873, it was not officially outlawed until the 20th century (Wikipedia). Jose F. de Navarro was a Spanish immigrant living in New York, responsible for the building of the Metropolitan Elevated RailroadSystem and the construction of the Central Park Apartments, forerunners to the modern apartment house (New York Times). Sewall was a politician and shipbuilder from Maine, notable for being William Jennings Bryan's running mate in 1896. GOOD condition.
