About this title


New York: Coward-McCann, 1962. 1st Edition, Hardbound, 8.5 inches tall, 375 pages. Bibliography. Section of black and white plates. The author "spirits the reader into a world as vanished as Pompeii. It is a world in which the hair is worn in a queue to the waist, in which the voluminous sleeve of silken garment hides a razor-sharp weapon. Most of all it is the world of the famed and feared tongs. Learn how they came to be, what they actually were, and why the worst features of these organizations took root and flourished just south of the Golden Gate."
