First edition. Handsomely bound in later full red-brown morocco decorated in blind; the spine with four raised bands and titles in gilt. New endpapers. Page edges untrimmed. Illustrated with a hand-coloured woodcut frontispiece and numerous black and white woodcuts. A near fine copy, the binding square, firm and bright; the contents with a couple of spots to the margin of the frontispiece and a little toning to the extremities are otherwise in very good order.
A guide to the cries of the street-hawkers of London both past and present, charmingly illustrated with over 50 woodcuts taken from earlier sources. This shilling pocket edition formed a follow up to Tuer's earlier "London Cries" (1883), as he states in the introduction: "At a guinea in bolder form, the 'Cries' have been sufficiently well received to induce, at the more popular price of a shilling, the publication of this additionally illustrated extension."
