YORKS 1ST ED SCARCE INSCRIBED WHITELEY TURNER BRONTELAND SPRING TIME SAUNTER UNIQUE FORSHAW HALIFAX 1913

IDEAL GIFT / TOPOGRAPHY / YORKSHIRE / OF INTEREST TO COLLECTORS OF LOCAL ITEMS / HISTORIANS /ACQUISITIONS LIBRARIANS / MASONIC VERSE / CLOCK - YORKSHIRE DIALECT / YORKSHIRE DIALECT POETRY AND PROSE.

This is a 1st. Edition hardback book A SPRING-TIME SAUNTER ROUND AND ABOUT BRONTE-LAND by WHITELEY TURNER with drawings by A. COMFORT and other illustrations (78 in all) - published by The Halifax Courier, Ltd., Halifax, 1913.Printed by C.H.Milnes, St. James\\'s Press, Halifax. 239 numbered pages plus:- preliminary pages which include frontispiece photograph of the author by Greaves of Halifax / full page illustration of Mount Tabor, from South East / 4+ page Preface / 2 page list of contents / 2 page list of illustrations, AND at the back of the book a 12 page list of Subscribers.

The book is tightly bound in marked green cloth with decorated front cover - bumped corners - some minor browning mainly to endpapers but contents clean and good - pages 97 to 112 have been sewn in upside-down - I class this item as being in good and collectable condition.

A neat inscription written in blue ink to the top of the first free endpaper reads \\"TO MY MUCH ESTEEMED FRIEND DR.CHAS.F.FORSHAW,L.L.D., WISHING HIM MANY HAPPY RETURNS OF HIS BIRTHDAY. FROM JOHN HARTLEY.JAN 23RD/13\\".

Chas.F.Forshaw, L.LD., F.R.S.A.I. edited YORKSHIRE NOTES AND QUERIES \\"being The ANTIQUARIAN HISTORY OF YORKSHIRE\\"; and was, I believe, the same Chas.F.Forshaw who wrote Masonic Verse.
JOHN HARTLEY, I believe, is the John Hartley of Halifax, who amongst other notable achievements, edited CLOCK ALMANACK.

A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE A UNIQUE BOOK AT A REASONABLE PRICE.
