Solid hardcover.; "As long as a credit system is a great convenience to the customer - so much so that it increases the volume of business, and likewise the turnover, in all but cut-rate store, it will result in enough larger profits to the store to more than make up for its cost and any loss entailed. In other words, credit is like advertising or window displays or good store cleanliness and attractiveness. It costs money, but it is a good investment. It pays."
