Pretty much what it says on the tin: it's a study of prostitution in New York City, published by the Bureau of Social Hygiene (which was headed by one of the Rockefellers) in 1913. It's an interesting historical document, as it lists prices and types of places of ill repute, as well as institutions that were supposed to be aiding wayward girls in an attempt to keep them off the streets.
