BIBLIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

The literature covering special phases of the development and growth of capitalized industry and "high finance " in the United States during the past half century is plentiful enough. Scores of volumes have been written on the Trusts, on particular industries, and special combinations of capital. But no exhaustive study appears to have been made of the broad trend toward the concentration and control of industry and finance by Wall Street financiers, during the remarkable period culminating in the aggressive antitrust legislation after the financial crash of 1907.

Among the best popular books on the Standard Oil Trust may be mentioned: Wealth Against CommonWealth, by Henry Demarest Lloyd ( 1894); History of the Standard Oil Trust, by S. C. T. Dodd ( 1894); Rise and Progress of the Standard Oil Company, by Gilbert Holland Montague ( 1903); History of the Standard Oil Company, by Ida M. Tarbell ( 1904). To supplement these books, bringing the facts relating to this great business aggregation down to later dates, reference should be made to government exhibits, such as the report of the United States Industrial Commission ( 1900 and 1902); the testimony in the Supreme Court suit for dissolution ( 1910 and 1911) and the report of the "Money Trust Investigation" made by the Committee on Banking
