The Book of Wealth by Hubert Bancroft, is the historical wealth building bible that examines wealth creators and wealth building secrets!
The Book of Wealth was initially published in 1895 in a limited number of 400 sets. Bancroft distributed the book to the wealthiest people in the western world such as the Morgan’s, the Rothschild’s, the Rockefellers, the Vanderbilts, the Kennedy’s, the Carnegies, the Fricks, the Fords, and the list goes on.
That’s right, up until now, the only people who have ever owned The Book of Wealth, has been the Global Elite. It makes sense that the only way to gain access to this amazing book was to be born into one of these wealthy and privileged families.
In 1898, Hubert Howe Bancroft placed the following advertisement in the New York Times promoting his infamous 10 volume book.
This book was originally sold at a cost of $2,500 per copy for the cygne noir edition. The second or fin de siecle edition cost $1,000 per copy. By today’s standards, The Book of Wealth would cost 25 times as much as it did back in the day! Adjusted for today’s inflation, this book would cost more than $63,600!
Infact The Book of Wealth can rarely be spotted at auctions, however when that does happen, the price is astronomical, and can even reach up to a million US dollars!
Perhaps the reason for its scarcity is the value of the knowledge it contains. Not only has it been used by the world’s richest individuals and families, but also by a number of the modern day motivational speakers and wealth creators.
The book created, and is the foundation, of the modern Wealth Attraction genre. Indeed leading motivational speakers such as Dr. Demartini have used The Book of Wealth as part of modern approaches to achievement, from the famous movie/book “The Secret” to other “The Law of Attraction” philosophies.
Here is what he has to say about this powerful book:
Hubert Bancroft who was a prolific American publisher and historian, set out to chronicle and analyze every significant example of financial success in recorded history, aided by an unprecedented research team. The result: “The Book of Wealth” – “[dealing] with all that is worth knowing concerning wealth, from the dawn of history to Joe Leiter’s wheat deal.”
Bancroft describes his monumental 10-volume set of books as “An Inquiry into the Nature and Distribution of the World’s Resources and Riches, and a History of the Origin and Influence of Property, its Possession, Accumulation and disposition in all Ages and among all Nations.”
Every notable example of wealth up to 1898 is sought out, examined and broken down to profound understandings – from pre-civilization, to history’s greats, to those alive in Bancroft’s time.
It analyzes common traits of wealth creation and the factors common to kings, countries, businessmen and companies who achieved a massive acquisition of wealth in their lifetimes and left lasting legacies behind.
At 10 volumes, The Book of Wealth is more substantial than any other Wealth Attraction media ever, with rigor and detail unmatched anywhere. Among gurus, it’s THE defining text on wealth attraction, and a well kept secret that only John DeMartini has referred to on occasion. Still, “The Book’s” ideas and approaches appear regularly (known to be watered down) in all modern Wealth Attraction. It is impossible to explain the influence, magnitude and rigor of this book, even today.
