Gold Ahead

George S. Clason wrote the first story; or chapter, of The Richest Man in Babylon in 1926. In 1930, two additional stories were written and compiled into book form titled The Richest Man in Babylon and Other Stories


He continued writing Babylonian themed stories until 1937 when he assembled them into a book titled Gold Ahead. Two options were available for purchase; a full cloth binding with dust jacket for $2.50 and a fine Morocco grained leather upgrade for $5.00. 


In 1955 Gold Ahead was given the title the world is most familiar with; The Richest Man in Babylon.
