[nice copy, no significant wear to book, no markings; jacket very slightly edgeworn at top of front panel]. (B&W drawings) The author, acclaimed for a previous work of medieval history, here "reveals the larger, fuller, more dramatic life of the common people, in this instance, the lives of children in London.
