New York: [Isaac Goldmann Co, Printers], 1911. First edition. Softcover. Octavo. 48 pages. Very good. Printed paper covers over sewn binding with a few chips to edges and along spine.

Mr. Canfield conducted public exhibitions of card tricks and cheats in an effort to demonstrate that gambling doesn't pay and that casual but habitual gamblers will always ultimately lose. He observes that in the end "...men will steal and women will sell themselves to keep up the play..." vainly hoping to win in the long run.
