Shaw, Charles G., Nightlife: Vanity Fair's Intimate Guide to New York after Dark, Bret-Koch, Raymond, New York, The John Day Co, 1931, First American edition, 12mo (7.5" x 5.25"), HB, black cloth illus. boards w/ red titles, NF / none.

182 pp. Uncut edges. Royal blue decorative endpapers. Illustrations by Raymond Bret-Koch. Light foxing on pg. 8. 8 pp. in middle have tiny hole where bug ate through, o/w this is an exceptional copy. Of all the sections, perhaps the recitation of the types of Speakeasies is the most appealing, the repeal of prohibition being still a couple of years away. Also included are Some Tips on Tipping (15 to 20% at "tonier" places), Cab Joints (the cab drivers steered patrons their way), night clubs, etc. Harlem, Greenwich Village, Yorkville, Lower East Side spots (etc.) are described, as are Chop Suey with Dancing and Chop Suey without Dancing spots. Roadhouses too. A good, quick read, and an excellent reference of sorts.     [Book ID # 106]
