New York: The Macmillan Company. Very Good+ in Very Good dj. 1913 (c.1912). 2nd printing. Hardcover. NOISBN . [dust-darkening to top edge, otherwise a nice solid copy with only minimal handling wear; jacket moderately soiled (especially at edges), slightly browned at spine, a few tiny tears]. (one photographic plate, tables, forms) Study focusing an "a neglected form of child labor," namely that performed by "newsboys, bootblacks, peddlers, messengers and other juvenile street workers." The author makes a case that this work should not simply be regulated, but actually prohibited. Especially interesting are the appendixes, which reproduce a number of forms then in use for the licensing and regulation of newsboys. There are six pages of publisher's ads at the back of the book, four of which are devoted to "notable works by Miss Jane Addams." Very uncommon in the dust jacket. . (Inventory #: 17617)
