31 + [1]pp., 12mo. Disbound without covers. In fair condition, on aged paper, with some leaves separating. The fourth and last chapter is a piece of futurology, titled 'The Battle of London; Or, The Last Great Struggle Between the Classes and the Masses.' It begins: 'It was in the year 2000 that the masses took possession of London. For twenty years before they had been preparing. It took all this time to make any adequate impression on the mountain of ignorance, indolence, and vice which had grown up under the reign of the classes.' The last page carries a list of 'Works on Social Questions' published by Reeves. Scarce: the only copy on COPAC at the Bodleian.
