Unless this is a reprint, this is from 1931. Gold was written by Clarence Budington Kelland, who was a very popular writer of the time. His most popular novel was Mr. Deeds Goes To Town, which has been filmed at least twice. Gold was a novel about international finance. It told the story of Anneke Van Horn, who knew how to make money but not how to land a man and have the family that she desired. Remember, it was written in 1931.
The artwork was done by Charles Wood, who also did a lot of covers for western pulp magazines. The red dress is exquisite and worth however much gold it cost.
