Bullets For Dead Hoods: An Encyclopedia of Chicago Mobsters, c. 1933

$38.00
Writer, curator, and gallerist John Corbett struck thrift gold at a going-out-of-business Chicago junk shop when he stumbled onto a browned and brittle manuscript intimately documenting the Chicago mob of the early 1930s. The tone of its typewritten and hand-annotated pages immediately grabbed him―sensationalistic and funny, they read like an embellished police blotter, naming names, listing addresses, and recounting crimes.
