Descripción

51pp. Folio. Paper wrappers. British Parliamentary paper. HC400. Whilst legislation from 1788 prohibited children under the age of eight being employed in cleaning chimnies, the committee heard evidence that children as young as 4 were employed with their parents lying over their age. Many children were stolen and made to work by violence. Those reluctant to climb were encoraged to do so by an elder boy following them and sticking pins in their heels. A very clean copy.
