Here is a wonderful book for the collector who seeks novelty and enjoys the very unusual. I will let the title page of the book speak for itself when it says that this book is "A complete and detailed account of the shameless traffic in young girls, the methods by which the procurers and panders (sic) lure innocent young girls away from home and sell them to keepers of dives. The magnitude of the organization and its workings. How to combat this hideous monster. How to save YOUR GIRL. How to save YOUR BOY. What you can do to help wipe out this curse of humanity. A book designed to awaken the sleeping and protect the innocent". The author of the book was the secretary of the Illinois Vigilance Association and the Superintendant of "Midnight Missions". There are thirty two pages of striking pictures "showing the workings of the blackest slavery that has ever stained the human race". The binding of the book shows considerable rubbing and wear but it is still tight and although there is a uniform toning of the text from age, there is no foxing in the book. It is the highly unusual nature of the book that makes it so much fun to read and own. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
