The North American Indian : being a series of volumes picturing and describing the Indians of the United States, and Alaska by Edward S Curtis( Book )

8 editions published between 1907 and 2004 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1906 Curtis approached railroad tycoon J.P. Morgan to request financial assistance for his project. Morgan agreed to pay him a total of $75,000, or $15,000 a year for five years. Curtis' masterwork, The North American Indian, he and Morgan decided, would be a set of 20 volumes of ethnographic text illustrated with high quality photoengravings taken from his glass plate negatives. Each of these volumes would be accompanied by a portfolio of large size images, all sumptuously bound in Moroccan leather. The papers used for printing would also be of the best quality: a Dutch etching stock by Van Gelder, a Japanese vellum, and for the most discerning subscribers, a translucent Japanese tissue paper. To fund publication, Curtis would sell subscriptions at approximately $3,000 per set, with a total of 500 sets to be published. President Roosevelt agreed to write the forward for the project. In return for his investment, Morgan would receive 25 sets of The North American Indian and 500 original photographs. (http://www.fluryco.com/curtis/bio4.htm)

The great Pierpont Morgan by Frederick Lewis Allen( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A surprisingly sympathetic biography of J.P. Morgan. He was a steadying force in the marketplace, especially in the area of the railroads where the competition was cut-throat. The author tells of cases where Morgan would re-acquire ownership of a Railroad at a loss, because Morgan thought the owner was not running it correctly. Time and again Morgan would risk money to uphold his business principals often losing money in the deal. Eventually in later years the government stepped in with their regulatory agencies and performed much the same task that Morgan was performing. The author gives some personal insights such as his style of art collecting and his lifestyle
