About this Item: Random House, New York, 1954, first edition., 1954. 311 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates. "This anecdotal profile tells the story of the fabulous 'Emperors of Pawnbroking' - the William (Hockshop) Simpsons who for five generations maintained the oldest, best-known and most respected pawnshop in the United States. This bizarre family business began in 1822 when the first William Simpson came from England and set up New York's first hockshop. From the era of O. Henry to that of Damon Runyon, the Simpsons did business with gypsies, morticians, gamblers, actors, sportsmen and thousands of others who came to their store to solve unique personal problems. Among the items handled by the Simpsons were the fabulous Hope Diamond, a Stradivarius, a ten-volume History of the Jews, fifteenth-century manuscripts, paintings, a set of Chinese screens, rugs, linens, coins, antiques, watches and a Crusader's giant thumb ring. The people who hocked these varied treasures were famous and infamous, rich and poor, e t h i c a l a nd not so ethical. There are stories here about 'sleepers' - those unexpected bargains that turn up so rarely, and there is an expose of clever frauds and shady tricks used in the past. In addition, the appendix covers techniques an d cu st om s of pa wnbroking and gives five basic rules for hockers, plus a brief history of borrowing and lending through the ages. Here you will learn how to protect yourself, how to tell genuine from fake merchandise, some dependable trade n ame s, an d h ow to de t erm ine value." Very light browning to pages, light browning to fore-edge and bottom of textblock, light soiling on bottom of textblock, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, book slight cocked, a few small faint waterm arks on top of tex tbl ock. Dust jacket has light browning, moderate edge wear/wrinkling/creasing, very small chips at top/bottom of hinges and flap-folds, one small tear archivally taped, light rubbing. Good/Fair.
