Coons, known by the pen name Armitage Trail. Presenting in its vibrantly illustrated Dust Jacket, this is a superb example of this extremely scarce title rarely offered. Maurice R. Coons was an American pulp fiction author, known best for his 1929 novel Scarface. Trail began developing the novel while living in Chicago where he began associating with local Sicilian gangs through an Italian-American lawyer with whom he was acquainted. From then on, Trail spent his nights socializing with gang members in order to gain ideas for his novel.

In 1932, the novel was adapted into a movie directed by Howard Hawks and produced by Howard Hughes. The movie of 1932 was later modernized and remade as 1983's movie Scarface staring Al Pacino. This remake premiered in New York City on December 1, 1983, and was released on December 9, 1983, by Universal Pictures … [Click Below for Full Description]
