An Exposure of The Arts & Miseries of Gambling; Designed Especially as A Warning to the Youthful and Inexperienced Against the Evils of That Odious and Destructive Vice

New York: Judd & Taylor, 1845. 2nd Edition. Hardcover. 'The sin of gambling, against which my present efforts are directed, is as great and widely spread as any, which, at this time, exists among us. Scarcely any class of our people are totally exempt from the effects of this deplorable evil. The children gamble, young men and women gamble, the middle-aged father and mother, who are rearing families, gamble, and, to complete the picture of degradation, we may often behold the hoary-headed sire as ardent a votary of this vice as any on the black catalogue of evil doers.' Second Edition. 'Revised by a Literary Friend'. This edition is not listed in Jessel, although the first and fourth are. The first in a series of works by the reformed gambler Johnathan H. Green. Pictorial title page. An early owner, Henry S Perry, has signed his name to the verso of the title page and the opening of the preface, and left the remains of a bookplate (he received the book as a prize). Hinges starting, wear to covers and spine. Appears to be a later binding. Foxing throughout. 12 x 18 cm. [1-5] 6-324. Good. Item #2022-M298
