1 PLOWDEN, Alison THE CASE OF ELIZA ARMSTRONG. A Child of 13 bought for 5.
London BBC Publications 1974 1st hardcover VG VG 
144pp. Illus. in text. In 1885 the daughter of a chimney sweep was taken from her home in a Marylebone slum by a tall woman with a limp, supposedly going 'into service'. Her disappearance was soon linked with a series of articles in a London evening newspaper which exposed a slave-trade in children who were being sold for prostitution and vice. There was a national outcry as the scandal rocked Victorian England. The result was a hasty change in the law and a dramatic trial at the Old Bailey. Very well illustrated. Index. 
Price: 10.00 GBP
