From the Introduction: "The book is a novel, and throughout it runs a love story which is characterized by sympathetic treatment and a constantly increasing interest; but the title role is taken by the old country banker, David Harum: dry, quaint, somewhat illiterate, no doubt, but possessing an amazing amount of knowledge not found in printed books." "This horse-trading country banker and reputed Shylock, but real philanthropist, is an accurate portrayal of a type that still exists in the rural districts of central New York". Handsome copy with a gift inscription. Bookseller Inventory # 493
