A novel from journalist James Greenwood on the plight and misery of the poor of London. Greenwood first became interested in the plight of the poor after spending a night in a Lambeth workhouse.

Illustrated with 12 woodcut engravings.

Condition

A good copy. The rebinding isn't of the highest standard but is acceptable. The pages are tanned throughout but the book remains in strong readable condition.
