1 VALENTINE, Alan VIGILANTE JUSTICE. How a Few Determined Men Brought Law and Order to the Forty-Niners in San Francisco.
New York Reynal & Co. 1956 First Edition Hardcover VG Good 
173pp+ illustrations inside covers. Dj is slightly torn with little loss at one corner and spine extremes, but all titles complete. "Give them a good honest trial and then hang them" was the cry of mining tribunals in the turbulent years of the Forty-Niners in San Francisco. Out of the chaos of crime and mockery of the courts, the Vigilantes arose to impose their own form of justice. How determined men such as General Sherman and Captain Farragut, both to achieve fame later, were among the actors on the stage, crowded with gamblers, prostitutes, ex-convicts and murderers as the citizens fought the criminals from without and corruption within their city.
