Aladdin Specialty Company Dice & Playing Card Catalog. Chicago, ca. 1940. 32 pages of gaffed dice, marked cards, faro equipment, poker chips, shiner rings, and much more. Very good. The first page features text regarding a man who "superintends" Aladdin's "special work." This is likely George Graham, though he is not mentioned by name. Graham built the finest cheating tools of the period, including trimmers, corner rounders, dealing boxes, dice edgers, and more. He turned out cheating devices for many of Chicago's gambling supply houses including H.C. Evans, Hunt & Co., A. Barr, Slack Mfg. Co., and George Mason & Co. Aladdin proudly announced that he was currently working exclusively for them and was part owner of the company. Items engineered by Graham are highly prized by todays collectors.
