Fascinating glimpse into training methods used mid-20th century and later to train detectives via distance education. Seventeen lessons assembled in a blue self-fastening binder. Book is 3/4 inch thick, undated, but pre-zip code (begun in 1963). Topics cover the gamut from pickpockets and confidence games to strong-arm robbery and homicide, divorce and laborary evidence to warehouse protection and locating fugitives. Good sourcebook for anyone who ever has thought of writing a "gumshoe" mystery and may even include some useful career education. Concludes with review and "final examination." No other books by this publisher located on Abebooks or Bookfinder at the time of this posting. Includes a separate 1970 letter from the Gleason Security Service, Inc. to the presumed previous owner indicating an interest in interviewing him for a job as a uniformed guard or special services employee.
