Fabulous Bawd: The Story of Saratoga
Cloth; dust jacket; 8vo; pp. 244, plus b/w illustrations printed on glossy stock at center. Spine tips and boards lightly rubbed; some light foxing along edges of text block, occasionally creeping into the margins. Dust jacket a little soiled here and there; lightly scuffed along the edges; price-clipped. An "account of life at America's most raucous spa during the century and a half of its existence as a hotbed of gambling, horse racing, society, and vice." Photographs are bluntly captioned: "Sam Rosoff, Saratoga's gross fairy godfather," "Arnold Rothstein, He crawled from under a rock," and more. Bookseller Inventory # JC9442
