This often-neglected work examines life in the Jewish Quarter of Manhattan around 1900. Anarchist journalist Hutchins Hapgood chronicled, for an English-speaking non-Jewish readership, the cultural, social and economic life of a community mostly unknown outside of its own borders. This edition reproduces illustrations by Jacob Epstein from the original 1902 publication. Epstein later emigrated to England, where he was a well-known sculptor in the Vorticist movement. Bound in a distinctive raw chipboard cover. This volume is the first in the Everyday Library series.
