London : Hamilton & Co. (Stafford), [1951]. First edition. "I got biggity once, when I figured I was a real night club baron. I quit rum and coke and started using a little champagne. Well, I guess it had no link-up really, but before I knew where I was choppers [tommy-guns] were blasting around me...". Later published in the USA as "Dope Doll" by "Steve Harrigan".
Crown 8vo (19cm). 158,[ii]pp. Original pictorial stapled wrappers – a sparkling design by John Pollack; some wear and light marking and fraying; a few internal marks and creases, but a good copy. Only a single copy (Bodleian) located in the major UK libraries.

Panther Books No. 87.
Crown 8vo (19cm). (159),[i]pp. Original pictorial wrappers; light rubbing and wear; slight nick; text lightly tanned, but a very good copy. Just two copies (Bodleian and Trinity College, Dublin) located on COPAC.
