We see many reprints and 'print on demand' books for sale these days ... but we believe it's difficult in most instances to do better than the original version! Pages are where they should be ... and the photos and other illustrations are always included in the books we sell. Some of our books are ex lib (withdrawn from a library), but unless otherwise noted in our descriptions, these have no library-related damage beyond the usual library markings and card pockets. This book is one of those originals! IT'S NOT A REPRINT! Ten years after the outbreak of World War I, the adoption of the Dawes Plan for settlement of the reparation question opened a new era in world economic relationships, providing the basis for a new orientation of economic forces in which America, instead of Europe, was to be supreme. George P. Auld's THE DAWES PLAN AND THE NEW ECONOMICS discusses whether the mechanics of the exchange would seriously hinder or prevent the transfer of German reparation payments into foreign currencies suitable for use by Germany's creditors. The Foreword is written by Rufus C. Dawes. The hardbound book was published in 1927 by Doubleday, Page & Co., New York, and apparently is a first edition. It's in Good+ condition, although it is ex lib with the usual library markings. The cover show very minor corner and spine end wear, with a small cut at top edge of the front cover. The front hinge is broken, but inside pages remain clean, crisp and tightly bound. (2175)
