Stead, W.T.: General Booth A Biographical Sketch.
London: Isbister and Company, 1891. 94 pp. 18 x 12 cm. Illustrated. Tissue-guarded frontispiece. A.e.g. Red boards with gilt titling. Some rubbing to boards but otherwise in good condition. A scarce item not often seen. There is a particularly interesting discussion on whether the Salvation Army owed more to the Quakers or to the Methodists. W.T. Stead was editor of the Pall Mall Gazette, and introduced yellow journalism to the English press. His exposure of child prostitution, working with Josephine Butler, was very important. He died on RMS Titanic in 1912. (Book ref. 13427) £75.00

BOOTH [W]. Gen.: In Darkest England and the Way Out. WITH ORIGINAL DONATION SLIP
International Headquarters of the Salvation Army, [1890] 8vo., First Edition, with large folding coloured chart as frontispiece, neat contemporary signature on front free endpaper; original black cloth, upper board and backstrip lettered in gilt, lemon endpapers, a remarkably well-preserved, bright, clean copy. WITH THE SEPARATELY PRINTED DONATION SLIP LOOSELY INSERTED. With 6pp Salvation Army catalogue at end. William Booth founded the Salvation Army in 1878. In 1890, the same year that Stanley published 'In Darkest Africa', he published his most important work with deliberate irony. Here he analyses the causes of the pauperism and vice of the period and proposes a remedy by ten expedients. These include land settlement, emigration, rescue work among prostitutes and at the prison-gate, the poor man's bank, and the poor man's lawyer. Copies contained a donation slip (occasionally still present as here) to raise public funds for the project. Booth's powerful arguments were convincing, money was liberally subscribed and a large part of the scheme was carried through. Printing and the Mind of Man, 560. (Book ref. 18612) £220.00
