Hot Oil. George Palmer PUTNAM, Nell SHIPMAN.

Hot Oil. New York: Greenberg Publisher, (1935).

First Edition. P. S. H. dustjacket art. 'From the fields of Texas pours forth a deluge of bootleg oil and gasoline, enriching the crooked, robbing the honest, bilking the public, a far flung traffic as vicious and spectacular as the gaudiest operations of pre repeal liquor smuggling. Modern youth gone wild; of a community wallowing in the sudden riches of gushing black gold; of law defiance and forgotten decency, of surging young love and tragedy and retribution, with a murder mystery whose adroit solution is as refreshing as the homely character who encompasses it.' Very scarce title. Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket.

Price: $250.00
