2 PINKERTON, Allan THE MODEL TOWN AND THE DETECTIVES
New York G.W. Dillingham & Co. 1904 Reprint Hardcover 
360pp+illus. VG in green cloth with brown titles and decorations. Very minor wear to extremes only. Inscript. on endpaper. Three lengthy stories from the extensive crime files of the Pinkerton Detective Agency - 'The Model Town and the Detectives'; 'Byron as a Detective'; and 'The Life of a Detective'. Originally intending to merely counter much of the negative press the agency had received and to dispel a few of the more spurious claims made by jealous rivals and dime novels, Pinkerton became a zealous and blatant self-promoter, pumping out a long string of books dramatising his and the agency's exploits. (Binding matches Pinkerton: A Double Life and Detectives).
