All About Monte Carlo and Roulette; Interesting to Players and Non-Players on Sale at All Libraries, Kiosks, Railway Stations

London: Edmund Seale, 1913. Hardcover. An exhaustive portrait of Monte Carlo before the War, mixing practical tips and information for travelers with absurd humor, often taking the form of answers to facetious correspondence. Date is taken from the preface. Half red cloth with image of a roulette wheel on the front cover, repeated in color on the title page. The front cover and spine are red cloth while the back cover is cardboard, printed again with the title. Wear to the cloth at the joints, with small patches missing. Spine and edges of front cover sunned, leaving a shadow and an indentation from its former shelf-mate. Endpapers discolored. The back pastedown has a small label from 'Brentano's, Booksellers & Stationers, 37 Avenue de L'Opéra, Paris', a branch of the American chain that opened in 1887 and still (after a brief closure) to be found at that address. [i-v], vi-vii,[1]-242 pages. Begins with 3 pages of ads and ends with 5, all aimed at English visitors to Monte Carlo. 13 x 19 cm. Good. Item #2022-M306
