Description:

Octavo, navy blue cloth, gilt decoration on cover and title on spine. Light edge wear. Pages lightly tanned with age, else clean. Earliest copyright 1912, but apparatus patented in Great Britain in 1928 and American patent applied for the same year. Book and game together first published in 1928. Explanatory text is 168 pages followed in the back 1/2 of the binding by a compartmentalized box containing the game pieces. Pieces originally included a pack of 102 cards divided into 10 "suits" of different business types (only 25 of these cards remain, but they could be easily reproduced for the purpose of playing the game), and 150 "bank notes" in four denominations - 1 pound (all 20 present), 4 pound (17 of original 40 present), 10 pound (all 60 present), and 50 pound (all 30 present). The game can be played by 5 to 8 players. The author felt that the general public must be taught the workings of business and the economy and devised this game to teach students and adults alike.
