Illus. with a few ads for Manhattan restaurants. Cloth, jacket. Second Edition. NY: Greenberg, 1925.

Chappell recalls the glory days of Gotham and furnishes his readers with tales of attending the heart-wrenching auction of Delmonico's establishment. Bookplate of Roy Whitney Carpenter tipped-on to front pastedown. Rubbing and chipping to jacket extremities, rubbing to one spot on front panel, else near fine in very good, scarce jacket.
