The Autobiography of a Bellboy, Anonymous
3 Anonymous The Autobiography of a Bellboy
Hardcover Very Good+ 
Book has only very light, overall wear and aging. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 128 pages; This is a totally anonymous -- no author, no date, no publisher, no price, no nothing except the novel -- book of semi-erotica about the adventures of a bellboy in New York. It was probably written in the 1920's or 1930's -- there are references to Clara Bow -- but no clue as to when this volume was actually published. You can feel very "edgy" just holding this book.
