In this illuminating study of gamblers and speculators, Fabian concentrates on gambling in 19th Century America. She describes riverboat card sharps and how they operated; urban bettors who consulted dream books to find clues to winning numbers and traders who frequented illegal brokerage houses (called bucket shops) to speculate in prices on grain and stock markets. 250 Pgs. Hardcover 1990
