This book, the germ of which consists of ten letters published in the Morning Post during the month of January, 1861, under the title of "London Horrors", in an attempt to beat the bounds of metropolitan dirt and misery. One special correspondents travels through the underbelly of London meeting and living with the very poorest and most desperate portion of society. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing many of these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
