Tilly From Tillamook

Portland: By the Author / Press of A.E. Kern, 1925. Second edition (same year as first). Octavo (19cm). Original illustrated wrappers; 127pp. Covers moderately dusted and darkened; a few faint corner-creases to text; Very Good.

Written as an expose of the bootlegging and white slavery rackets of Oregon, the novel chronicles the fall and rise of an innocent country girl who comes to Portland from the cheese-making village of Tillamook. The author's foreword announces that "Law enforcement is the burning topic of the hour, and will continue to be while merchant princes, as well as members of the United States Senate, Conress, public officials, apologetic judges and parasitical bootleg attorneys keep stocks of fancy liquors in their homes and serve the same to their friends..." Uncommon in commerce; this is a tight, attractive copy. OCLC finds 15 locations, nearly all in Oregon.

Price: $150.00
