Delving into the world of the London "street-folk"-the buyers and sellers of goods, performers, artisans, laborers and others-this extraordinary work inspired the socially conscious fiction of Charles Dickens in the 19th century as well as the urban fantasy of Neil Gaiman in the late 20th.
Volume III explores the lives of:
• the "destroyers of vermin"
• street musicians
• "exhibitors of trained animals"
• dock laborers
• cab drivers
• and more.
English journalist HENRY MAYHEW (1812-1887) was a founder and editor of the satirical magazine Punch.
