First UK edition, first impression, revised by the author from the first US edition of 1893. The novel ranks among the first works of American Naturalism, and is known for its gritty realism and strident social commentary. The American author and critic Henry Edward Rood declared the novel "one of the most powerful, terrible and hideous studies of the dregs of humanity that have been produced in the English language" (review in the New York Mail and Express, May 30, 1896).
