By Noah Webster.
A neglected street boy: an Arab of the streets. "The word gamin was printed for the first time, and passed from the populace into literature in 1834. It made its first appearance in a work called Claude Gueux: the scandal was great but the word has remained. ... The gamin of Paris at the present day, like the Graeculus of Rome in former time, is the youthful people with the wrinkle of the old world on its forehead."-Trans. of Victor Hugo. " In Japan the gamins run after you and say, " Look at the Chinaman." -Laurence Oliphant.
