No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality. First Edition, First Printing. Dust Jacket with price is in a new clear protective Mylar sleeve. ----------- Key West in its time has been many things to many different people. It was once the largest city in Florida. It has been one of the wealthiest cities, per capita, in the country; it has also been among the poorest. In the 1980s, it elected the first openly gay mayor in the United States, and later a mayor who, according to the Washington Post, had been a "gambler, gunrunner, saloonkeeper, fishing boat captain, ladies' man, and peerless raconteur." But where Key West is going is hardly clear. [Dust Jacket]
