New York: Macmillan, 1909.
First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 269 pp, in publisher's decorated blue cloth, top edge gilt. Very mild spine slant, a little soiling to the fore edge; very good. Recollections of Riis' youth in Denmark. Laid in is a short autograph letter signed by Riis to a Mrs. Tenney, in which he specifically mentions this book. In part: "Perhaps it would interest you to know that I am just putting the last hand to a little book on "The Old Town" that will be published in the fall of 1909." There is a newspaper clipping about Riis glued to the verso of the letter.
