I have 974 “Dalesman” titles in stock and have ambitions to get round to listing them all. I have decided to use calendar years rather than the volume years (that the “Dalesman” use). They do make excellent birthday or anniversary presents for Yorkshire folk (or even non Yorkshire folks come to that, we can’t all have been born in Yorkshire). I am asking £50 for the first issue (Though I do have a copy with a partial front cover that has been repaired for £10) I am asking £15 for all other 1939 issues.
