First Edition, As Stated. Octavo, black cloth, gilt letters, 345 pp. Illus. Very Good+, with former-owner signiture and light rubbing to letters on spine, in a like dust jacket with light edgewear. ̉Here is a book that not only rattles the skeletons in Seattle's historical closets -- it even reaches in and audaciously tickles thier funnybones...While lightly and entertainingly written, the book is deeply researched, and the many interesting anecdotes that pepper it are true...It's a lively, lusty, and often irreverernt look at the factions and fights that made Seattle America's youngest major metropolis during her first fifty years...and at who made a buck along the way.Ó
