K-148 THE CHICAGO UNDERWORLD nf
The Chicago Underworld
(Gem of the Prairie)
By Herbert Asbury
Chicago has always had a sort of off-color reputation, sometimes deserved, sometimes not. Asbury examines the seamier side of the Windy City's first 100 years. From the corruption of the early city planners, through the meat-packers of the late 19th century, and the horror of the Capone years, this is chronicle of history such as never appears in textbooks.
Exterior is a bit dull, with dirt visible along top edge of each cover. Spine , except for two nubbed corners, could pass for new. Pages are brown. Binding is tight and square.
