Not in Heckmondwike Book Shop does not seek out Local History items that are not in Yorkshire, but can understand that there may be others, not fortunate enough to be born or live in Yorkshire, that may have an interest in where they are born or live.
A Short History of Birmingham by Conrad Gill & Charles Grant Robinson
Published in 1938 by Birmingham Corporation a hard back book (no dj) 96 pages some illustrations. This would be a fine copy but for neat name and date on title page. Price includes UK Posting – For other postal rates to more distant locations please contact me.

76 page booklet published in 1964 by The Scottish Tramway Museum Society vg+ Price includes UK Posting – For other postal rates to more distant locations please contact me.
CHESTER The 21st edition published by Tiling not dated but I think it was published in 1953. A 90 page guide well illustrated with some great ads.
TOR BAY & TORQUAY Nice little guides published as “The Countryside Series by Bovey Tracey, Devon. Undated and the Torquay guide has the title page missing. A previous owner dated the book “August 1950” so they must be earlier than that. They were sold for 2/6.
J Arthur Dixon’s ROSS and CROMARTY. A Handbook for Tourists, undated but I would guess at mid 50’s 15 full page colour pictures.
Just as above for THE ISLE OF SKYE
City of LONDONDERRY Official Guide, undated but from the illustrations I would guess early 50’s What do you think? A 72 page illustrated guide, the ads are not as good as the Chester ads though.
Tramways of the MONKLANDS What more could you want from a title? 76 pages well illustrated.
In Search of a Past by Ronald Fraser – The Manor House, Amnersfield 1933-1945 190 pages.
The Old Houses of STRATFORD UPON AVON 1st edition hardback published in 1925. It appears this book is much more common than I would have thought. 180 pages.
The Heart of a Village – The intimate history of Aldbourne by Ida Gandy. This 160 page unillustrated book has been reprinted many times so it must be good, or at least loads of people think it is good and buy it.
RUTLAND a guide and Gazetteer 64 pages a 1985 2nd edition.
ALL ABOVE are available in my shop for £2.50. All can be dispatched post free to addresses in the UK apart from the Stratford Hard Back that is heavier than the others.
