About this Item: Dover Publications, Inc, Mineola, New York, U.S.A., 2005. Trade Paperback. Condition: Near Fine. 404 Pages. A 3/4 inch rubbed spot on back cover. No other defects notes to this tight book with flawless interior text pages. The first and possibly the greatest sociological study of poverty in nineteenth-century London, this survey by a journalist invented the genre of oral history a century before the term was coined. Henry Mayhew vowed to publish the history of a people, from the lips of the people themselves-giving a literal description of their labour, their earnings, their trials and their sufferings, in their own unvarnished language. With his collaborators, Mayhew explored hundreds of miles of London streets in the 1840s and 1850s, gathering thousands of pages of testimony from the city's humbler residents. Their stories revealed aspects of city life virtually unknown to literate society. A sprawling, four-volume history resulted from Mayhew's investigations. This extract focuses on the criminal class-pickpockets, prostitutes, rag pickers, and vagrants, whose true stories of degradation horror, and desperation rival Dickensian fiction. A classic reference source for sociologists, historians, and criminologists; Mayhew's work is immensely readable. As Thackeray wrote, these urban vignettes conjure up a picture of human life so wonderful, so awful, so piteous and pathetic, so exciting and terrible, that readers of romances own they never read anything like to it. Contents in 13 Chapters: Prostitution In London, The Dependants of Prostitutes, Clandestine Prostitutes, Cohabitant Prostitutes, Crimanal Returns, Traffic in Foreign Women, Sneaks or Common Thieves, Pickpockets, Horse and Dog Stealers, Highway Robbers, Housebrreakers and Burglasrs, Prostitute Thieves and Felonies on the River Thames Size: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".

About this Item: George Braziller, Inc., New York, 1959. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good+. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good+. Illustrated by Ronald Searle (illustrator). 1st American Edition; 1st Printing. B&W Illustrations; The book is in Very Good+ condition and has a Very Good+ dust jacket. There is some very beginning toning / sunning to top and bottom edges of book cover. The text pages are clean and bright. The reverse of the frontispiece has two tape shadows where something was taped to the page, there is also some associated shadowing to reverse of half title page for the same reason. The front endpaper has a previous owner's inked name, date and place. The dust jacket does show some toning due to acid content of paper (especially the spine and spine joints). The top spine end of the front dust jacket cover has two small semi-closed edge tears. Rear top edge of dust jacket has one one inch long semi-closed tear as well as some beginning nicking and rubbing / wear to top spine end of dust jacket. "Not for many years has a series in Punch aroused so much comment and enthusiasm as the New Mayhew, in which Ronald Serle and Alex Atkinson, collaborating for the first time, brought all their perceptive wit to bear on a survey of what might be called the New Poor, with a glance at What Really Goes On in the Big City." "In 1958 The Big City or the New Mayhew was published. Written by Atkinson and illustrated by Ronald Searle, this collection of humorous character studies had appeared previously in Punch. These studies were based upon the journalism of Henry Mayhew, particularly his famous survey London Labour and the London Poor which appeared in the Morning Chronicle newspaper, throughout the 1840s.".
