WARNER, Horace. Spitalfields Nippers. London: Bedford Institute Association, 1975.

8vo, photographic soft card covers, pp. 24; a few small patches of rubbing and staining to covers, including a vertical strip of discolouration to lower cover; very good.
First appearance of these photographs in print.
Warner had taken a series of these photographs in 1900, showing children in the poorer districts of London. In 1913, the Bedford Institute paid two pounds, fifteen shillings and sixpence these same photographs for use in their fund-raising activities, and they were later reproduced in handbills and upon collecting boxes.
A later, more lavish cloth-bound edition was published in 2014.
