New York: E.P. Dutton and Company, Inc., (1932).
Hardcover. First edition. Front fly lacking, modest soiling on boards, a good or better copy in good dustwrapper with some chipping and toning. Bookplate of noted collector Ingle Barr on front pastedown. Inscribed by Miller to Barr, taking into account the apparent scarcity of the book: "To You, Ingle Barr - and, Jesus, how I'd like to buy this from you. How about a deal? Max Miller." Something of a pioneer book of reportage, Miller covered the San Diego waterfront for years. Basis for the James Cruze film featuring Claudette Colbert as the love interest of Ben Lyon, a reporter out to expose smuggling.
