Dark wraps w/light soiling/staining. RARE. A 44pp. booklet printed at the penitentiary around 1949-53. Probably closer to 1949 as per text (Richard Daley was Mayor). There is a story titled 'Straight from the Shoulder" which is printed throughout the booklet. Interspersed are a lot of quotations regarding crime and deterence from Vips from Illinois. The chicago reporter for the Tribune James Doherty started the idea of having "Three Strikes agaisnt Crime" in the city of Chicago. Chester Gould got behind the idea and contributed quite a few drawings and wrote the story including Doherty as "Big Jim" a character in the short novelette. The back cover also incorporates a postcard that was to be sent to the Warden at Stateville for more information about crime prevention. Here is a quote from the forward of the book: "I am one of the guys who traded his name for a number. I work in the print shop at Stateville. Matter of fact, I set the type for this booklet.I hear the booklet's going to be handed out to the Chicago High Schools." Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. N° de ref. de la librería 002725
