About this Item

Interior clean; rough cut pages. Binding has front hinge crack. Brown boards with gilt lettering have light wear at corners and spine and shelf scuffing and a couple of small, barely noticeable stains. Described as one of America's few great Empire Builders, Spreckels organized vast industries, built railways and fleets of steamships, owned banks and newspapers, employed tens of thousands of men, financed and developed no end of enterprises and most strikingly he set to work to realize his dream of one day seeing a city rise on the shore of San Diego's great landlocked bay. How he played the game of life is set out here. B/w photos 315 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 19983
