LOW-LIFE DEEPS AN ACCOUNT OF THE
STRANGE FISH TO BE FOUND THERE BY JAMES GREENWOOD
AUTHOR OF "THE WILDS OF LONDON" A NEW EDITION London
CHATTO AND WINDUS, PICCADILLY
1881

Preface[edit]

THE best excuse I have to offer for so soon again venturing to set before the public yet another book composed of selections from my contributions to the Daily Press, is the favour with which the last - "The Wilds of London," was generally received. Moreover, it may be claimed for the present volume that it is not entirely re-print. Included in it are several hitherto unpublished articles - "Sunday in the City," "A Fallen Star," "Down Ratcliff Way," and "A Night with old Tom." There is also another trifle of "original matter," for which I would respectfully bespeak the kind reader's attention. It refers to a subject which has occasioned me more anxiety and disquiet than any other that in my long experience it has been my lot to deal with. I allude to the Dog and Man Fight, witnessed by me last year, in Hanley, Staffordshire, and described at the time in the columns of the Daily Telegraph. I sincerely hope that the "further particulars" herein and for the first time made known, although not so absolutely conclusive as I could desire, will, at all events, go far towards convincing the most incredulous that the "Man and Dog Fight" was a Fact.
