Straight, Place, and Showdown
NY, Pageant Press, (1952). Apparently his first book, on how to make money on horse racing, after a career that started with writing for racing papers and eventually evolved into writing pulp fiction for Ace paperbacks, most with a race track theme. This copy is inscribed by the author: "For ___ ___/ You can always tell a horse player, but you can't tell him much." A very good copy in a fair, edge-chipped dust jacket. [#035815] $75

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
