SOLD OUT AT THE MOMENT

 

This handbook for the use of tramps and hoboes, has taken eighteen years to complete. I have added to it, altered it, condensed it, expanded it, checked the facts. Learned and added new pieces. I think I have finally written it correctly and finished.

I believe it is the best available book on the subject, and cannot see any improvement that I can make, at the moment . . .

The handbook is bound in laminated covers front and back – front shown above.

Not as durable as with a vinyl cover, and the plastic will eventually wear off leaving a magazine type stiff paper cover, but anyway better looking at $18, plus post and packing of $4.
