The Sealed Book
A treatise and guide for the protection of players of games of chance as Dice, Cards, Roulette, Slot machines, etc.
And investors in Stocks of Mining, Oil and Plantation Companies; Pools for betting on the Turf, the Board of Trade, Etc., Etc., Etc.
The object of this book is to reveal to the public the ingenious tricks, schemes, and apparatus used by gamblers and 'get-rich-quick fakirs' t defraud the gullible of their money.
I believe, a general knowledge of the underhanded methods of these vultures will do more towards 'killing the game' than an act of legislature.
Protection systematically unmasks countless methods of deception by both man and machine. The publisher decided that this book's importance was such that they stripped clean of period lingo, poor illustrations, and dull layout technique. they've come up with a completely revised and newly-designed version making this one fascinating read. Even though the material is nine decades old, its charm and historical significance is so powerful that it almost comes across as a period novel --Gameroom Magazine, May 1999
This & new edition, the 10th, is the first available to the public since 1961. It's been revamped, indexed, illustrated, polished up and given one of the finest & makeovers & I've ever seen by the talented and professional Daniel Mead --Howard Schwartz, Gaming Today, May 18-24, 1999
You did a beautiful job reproducing this book! --Edna Luckman, Gambler's Book Store, Las Vegas, Nevada
