This book is a fascinating pictorial record of the Chartist Movement:

It includes over seventy images (including photographs, prints and drawings) which portray the Chartist leaders, illustrations of demonstrations and events, and chartist memorabilia and cartoons

The Chartist movement was a mass working class political movement which dominated British politics in the mid 19th century. Centred around demands for a 6 point peoples charter, chartism is widely regarded as the first national class concious movement of the working class, and as such is seen as a direct forerunner of the Labour Representative Commitee and the subsequent Labour Party
