Gambling and Gambling Devices by John Philip Quinn

Being a complete systematic educational exposition designed to instruct the youth of the world to avoid all forms of gambling.

This is a classic of gambling literature. It describes the implements and devices used by crooked gamblers and gambling establishments to fleece the unwary.

Excerpt from the Preface:

For a quarter of a century the author witnessed and practiced every variety of gambling known to the profession. The next quarter of a century he has devoted to exposing the frauds of the gambler. Starting out in the lecture field, he realized his efforts would be futile unless he could show the public in a practical form the evil attached to gambling, to accomplish which he took machinery captured from the gamblers and thereby succeeded in saving thousands of young men from gambling.
