Synopsis of Secret Fire: The Wilds of London (Illustrated Edition) by James Greenwood:

”James Greenwood (1832-1929) was a British social explorer, journalist and writer. The Daily Telegraph on July 6, 1874, published an article written by James Greenwood, in which he reported on June 24, 1874 to have witnessed a human-baiting. In 1876, Greenwood republished the article in his book Low-Life Deeps: An Account of the Strange Fish to Be Found There, in the chapter called In the Potteries. Amongst his other works are Unsentimental Journeys; or, Byways of the Modern Babylon (1867), The Seven Curses of London (1869), In Strange Company (1874), The Wilds of London (1874), Mysteries of Modern London (1883), Odd People in Odd Places; or, The Great Residuum (1883) and Toilers in London (1883).”
