  • This edition includes the following editor's introduction: Poverty in London during the 19th century and the splendorous Victorian Era

Originally published in 1840, “Poor Jack” is a novel by English author Frederick Marryat.
“Poor Jack” tells the story of Thomas Saunders, a sailor's son and neglected street urchin struggling to survive in Greenwich, London in the early 19th century. (Poor Jack was the title given by the waterfront boys, or mudlarks, to their chief.) In a rags-to-riches story Saunders eventually rises by his own efforts to become a pilot on the Thames, makes his fortune and retires to the life of a wealthy squire.
“Poor Jack” includes interesting descriptions of domestic life among the naval lower ranks and contains many anecdotes of seafaring life.
