240pp. Quarto [29.5 cm] Slate paper covered boards with a white ink stamped title on the spine. Very good. The edges of the pages are very subtly yellowed. The dust jacket is in very good condition, with gentle surface and edge wear, and mild toning at the edges.
From the jacket, "With his [Hine's] camera, he observed the immigrants as they landed in the slums of New York. In 1908 Hine gave up teaching and became a professional photographer. Among other things, he worked as a photographer and inspector for the National Child Labor Committee, documenting child labor in coal mines and cotton mills and uncovering abuses. His portrayal of the exploitation of children ultimately prompted the U. S. Congress to pass laws against child labor."
