About this Item: Prentice-Hall, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, 1974. Hard Cover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. First and only printing. Rare. Black full-cloth boards, gilt stamped spine titles, moderate shelf wear. Pages generally fine; frt. endps. removed, small stamp at top ext. edge, few adhesive shadows inside bk. brd. Bind solid; hinges intact, frt. hinge reinforced. Dj lt. edge wear, rub; unclipped 7.50, protected in new clear sleeve. Classic jacket design by Carl A. Koenig of electronics gear (the Cheesebox) bursting from an expandable briefcase. For many years the insiders knew that Cheesebox Callahan was the top, the King, of the wiremen: the greatest living exponent of electronic larceny. Here, in this book, Cheesebox tells his story for all. A story beyond the dreams of Damon Runyon. Half a century before Watergate, Gerard Michael Callahan was known to every Tammany Hall boss as the man to bug a political opponent's office or "arrange" a voting machine. The roster of his underworld clineds readl ike a Who's Who from a Post office wall: Capone, Anastasia, Shultz, Costello, DeCarlo, and many more. Equally impressive were his clients from the other side - captains of industry, law enforement, politicians, and the military establishment. In fact, he once helped Robert Kennedy draft wiretap legislation. But Callahan was always his own best client. Tempers still flare at reminders of the time he simultaneously ripped off the cops and the bookies of the entire Borough of Queens in a single afternoon. The "Cheesebox," which he invented is generally recognized as the outstanding masterwork of illegal electronics. In Cheesebox, Callahan and Paul Meskil, well-known writer for the New York Daily News, collaborate to tell the rowdy, exicting, sometimes-sad, simoetimes-hilarious story of an authentic criminal genius. And for those who may need it, Cheesebox has even provided some expert advice for those who want to protect themselves from electronic surveillance. 281 pages. Insured post. Size: 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" Tall. Seller Inventory # 017716
