About This Item

Hughes, Rupert: Miss 318 AND Miss 318 And Mr. 37. Fleming H. Revell Company, 1911, 1912 1st Editions. Illustrated by Victor Semon Perard. USED. RARE Historical fiction based on actual events that occurred during the TRIANGLE SHIRTWAIST FIRE: "One of the worst industrial disasters in the history of New York City, causing 146 deaths and an unknown number of injuries, took place on Saturday, March 25, 1911, at the Triangle Shirtwaist Company. The workplace occupied the eighth, ninth, and tenth floors of the Asch Building located on the corner of Greene Street and Washington Place, off Washington Square. Isaac Harris and Max Blank, the Jewish owners of the factory, employed almost a thousand workers in busy seasons. On the day of the fire approximately five hundred workers were present. Victims of the fire were mostly recent immigrant Jewish women aged sixteen to twenty-three. The Triangle Shirtwaist Company was an anti-union shop and the site of the famous 1909 "Uprising of the 20,000." for union recognition organized by the International Ladies Garment Workers Union (ILGWU) that swept the industry. Though some firms settled with the workers, the Triangle Shirtwaist Company refused to grant their demands, and most union members were discharged. The fire probably started as a result of a lighted match dropped accidentally into a bin full of fabric scraps. It spread rapidly throughout the densely packed area of the shop." Red boards with white titling and black coiled firehose on front board,. Used. Good/No DJ. Spine lightly sunned. Stamped titling on spine still readable. GREAT READS. NOT EXLIB ITEMS.
