Fabulously illustrated and lurid promotional for Colonel Dick Maple's 1903 polemic against American wealth and greed. "With her jaws crimsoned with the hearts of blood of toil, the beast of Greed, like a mighty devil tramps up and down the land, crushing hope and ambition from the breast of labor." With a separate order sheet appealing to booksellers and agents.
