By John S. Draper, "otherwise, Uncle Ben Morgan, of Morganville, N.Y." Probably really a humor book, but apparently has some accounts of cons; a complete chapter listing is here.
An 1897 hardcover out of Chicago, this one comes with a page of Genesis, and is fairly well kept on the outside, with the metallic elements relatively unfaded. Mostly the spine is tight, although the front and back hinges are loose, as shown (the back is beginning to separate, but not to a fatal degree). The pages are toned but clean. A nice curio of the nineteenth century and would make a unique gift.
