January, 1913

This book, published in 1913, describes the results of the first investigation made by the Committee on Women's Work of the Russell Sage Foundation, part of a series of studies of the condition of women's work in important trades in New York City that demonstrate similar conditions throughout the United States. The bookbinding trade, one of the most important trades for women in the city at the time, is examined in detail. These findings were relevant to many other industries because it presented most of the important problems which confronted women wage-earners at the time.

MARY VAN KLEECK was secretary of the Committee on Women's Work at the Russell Sage Foundation.
