Book Description The Raleigh Publishing Company, Salt Lake City, UT, 1914. Hardcover. Condition: Good. First Edition. Graded as "good" only because it has an annoying modern gift inscription on front flyleaf unrelated to the contents of the book. Otherwise, it is a surprisingly crisp copy in original green cloth with bright gilt titles and decoration, of a fascinating expose of crooked gambling techniques. Illustrated with drawings and a fold-out frontispiece. "Being a complete exposure of all gambling, graft and confidence games with stories illustrating the methods employed by the different "Operators". Seller Inventory # 117565
