Notes

First edition, second printing. "Master Man Hunters shows the relentlessly scientific methods of the super-sleuths of London, Paris, Vienna and Berlin" (jacket blurb). Joseph Gollomb (1881-1950) was a Russian-born American socialist brought up in the Jewish tenements of New York's Lower East Side."He wrote for several New York publications, including the Evening Post, the Evening World, and the New Yorker, as well as with the foreign bureaus of the Associated and the United Press. His status as an investigative reporter allowed him to interview famous figures from George Bernard Shaw to Anatole France and granted him access to the archives of Scotland Yard and other police departments, secret services, and detective schools across the United States and Europe. These experiences furnished material for Gollomb's dozens of books, which include non-fiction titles like Armies of Spies and Crimes of the Year and detective fiction" (Harry Ransom Center online).
