Boston Small, Maynard & Company 1915 First Edition Cloth SIGNED by the Author
Near Fine in the publisher's original coarse green cloth. Title-labels on both the spine and the front board. 291pps., plus 15 plates of various street urchins, a frontispiece, and eight pages of advertisements for other titles. No dustjacket. There is a bit of sunning to the spine and to its label. Light foxing at the top of the frontispiece and a few of the plates. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No reading wear. An excellent copy of a sad and scarce title concerning child-labor and the neglect of children early in the twentieth-century: part of the publisher's human welfare series. SIGNED and inscribed by the author to Dr. J. J. Reilly, 'with compliments of The Little People', on the ffep. ".He lives in gangs, rambles about the streets, lodges in the open; he runs, watches, begs, kills time, colors pipes, swears like a fiend, haunts the wine-shops, knows thieves, is familiar with women of the town, talks slang, sings filthy songs, and has nothing bad in his head, for he has in his soul a pearl innocence, and pearls are not dissolved in mud." -- (with compliments to) Victor Hugo, from Les Miserables (and the frontispiece).
