Pyramid G43 Teen-Age Vice! NF
(The Shocking Truth About)
(Designs In Scarlet)
By Courtney Riley Cooper
From the back cover:
"They hold orgies in cellar clubs, go on juke joint binges and motel
'honeymoons.' They get hopped up on liquor and dope, then rob and rape
and murder. They are the young people under 21 who commit more than half the major crimes in the U.S.A.!"
Change a few terms, add a few more problems, and you might be describing
today's troubled youth. But this collection of horrifying facts was
first published in 1939! The paperback edition dates from 1952, when it
was still scary.
Second Pyramid printing, 1952. This, incredibly, is an unread copy,
clean, with no wear other than some nubbed corners. Pages are off-white.
If you're not interested in the vice aspects, buy it as a collector
item, or as historical research.
