Set 'Em Up. Illustrated by John Rupe. Published by a Punch-Drunk Author who Still Hasn't Learned his Lesson.

New York: the author/Cornwall Press, 1939.

Octavo, 136 pages. FIRST EDITION of this third installment of self-published barroom tales from Joe Madden. All of the the dust jacket blurbs are supplied by Joe Madden. Madden's bartending world is rough and tumble, occasionally crass and frequently politically incorrect. Edges a bit dusty, some light age-toning throughout, otherwise fine in bright orange cloth, in a very good, unclipped dust jacket with a bit of darkening to the spine and very light edgewear. Boldly inscribed by the author on the front free end paper, "To one of Coach Murray's half backs, but he says he wuz the manager, my error. An alright guy too. Most sincerely, Joe Madden."
