How to Beat the Game

New York: G.W. Dillingham Co., 1902. Hardcover. Brown, Garrett How to Beat the Game New York: G.W. Dillingham Co., 1902 'At the earnest solicitation of a number of gentlemen (some of whom claim to be sufferers by reason of my superior knowledge of our national game) I have been led into an attempt to lay down certain infallible rules for winning at Poker. It must be patent to the most obtuse mind that a work of this nature should be limited in circulation. Plainly, if all players were to become equelly skillful the game would degenerate into a stupid and zestless passtime. Therefore, I have thought it desirable to restrict the use of this book to that somewhat numerous and growing class who are too proud and honorable to cheat, though filled with a passionate and consuming desire to win at all times.' A mix of advice and humor, illustrated with caricatures of the different types of poker players. Jessel 183. Pictorial cloth boards, worn. Deckled edges, with the occasional unopened leaf. [1-13], 14- 117 pages, 12 unnumbered plates. 10 x 18 cm. Very Good. Item #2022-M316
