[nice-looking book, very faint soiling to bottom page edges; jacket shows just a trace of handling wear]. (B&W photographs) The history of the "wonderfully complex" Julian Petroleum Corporation swindle, inextricably linked with the story of the Southern California oil/real estate boom of the 1920s, which had "as many unexpected twists and turns as any mystery novel." It ranks with the Teapot Dome mess (which of course also has its L.A. connections, through Edward L. Doheny) as one of the defining scandals of the day. View more info
