In San Francisco of the 1860s an impudent young woman and her gentleman partner pull off "one of the biggest swindles of this gay and gaudy century." 186 pages + advertisements for other Gold Medal titles, cover illustration by Jack (John) Floherty Jr. Rubbing, impressions, some edgewear, scraping to edges, tanning. A fragile vintage paperback that's in okay shape at the moment, but which must be handled with care or it'll crumble before your very eyes.
