The Riddle of Crooked Creek

This is not listed on any site that I know of for sale. Lloyd Cole seems to have published a wide range of books but not in great numbers (only 86 listings on ABE). James Booth seems to have made contributions to compilations. This is typical of War Time publications (1944) in that it is a 32 page booklet. I don’t know what it is really worth despite being very rare, but I am willing to part with it for £10.00 (that includes UK P&P)



At Your Service One Hundred Years of The Huddersfield Corporation

A 72 page booklet (not illustrated) published late 60’s. I worked for Kirklees in the 70’s and recognise many of the departments described, but I am sure that one of my colleagues when I was a councillor, Peter McBride, will remember the whole of this history. There are copies of this available on the net, but not as cheap as the £5.00 I am asking.

Huddersfield Official Handbook (1960)


Now there are Handbooks and Town Guides, but this is something on a different level, published by Pyramid Press Limited (London) in 1960 (undated but the mayor who signed off this book served a959-1960). 272 glossy pages with advertisements from most of the prominent businesses of the time. A 30 page history well illustrated and fold out maps of the town. 10X7, this copy has tape (neatly) to the spine and page edges of the cover, does not detract from the quality.

Guide to the Calder and Hebble Navigation and the Huddersfield Broad Canal

The book is not dated and credits no author but credits members of Inland Waterways Association.

Slavery in Yorkshire

This new collection of essays based upon a conference at the University of Huddersfield, generously supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, explores the links between Richard Oastlers extraordinarily influential campaign against child labour in Yorkshire after 1830 and the remarkably successful campaign to abolish the transatlantic slave trade led by Yorkshire MP William Wilberforce before 1807. With contributions from D. Colin Dews, Dr John Halstead, Dr John A. Hargreaves, Dr Janette Martin, Professor Edward Royle and Professor James Walvin, it evaluates the distinctively Yorkshire context of both movements and offers a re-assessment of Oastlers contribution to their success. It reveals how Oastlers associations with both evangelical Anglicanism and Nonconformity, especially Methodism, stimulated and sustained his involvement in the ten-hour factory movement and examines the role of the regional press, local grass-roots organisation and Oastlers powerful oratory in helping to secure a successful outcome to the campaign. In a foreword, the Revd Dr Inderjit Bhogal, a leading figure in both the regional and national commemoration of the abolition of the transatlantic slave trade in 2007, commends this wide-ranging historical study with its broad perspective as an important contribution to making us all more informed on the whole theme of slavery today. Delivered to UK Address £15.00

Erle Stanley Gardner * A A Fair

I am of an age when I can’t think of Perry Mason without thinking about a wheelchair. I must admit I can’t remember reading any DA books, but did read a lot of Perry Mason, even though I was always impatient to get to the court room as that was the bit I enjoyed. You can tell from the list below how popular he was in the 50’s and 60’s. I have lumped the books together but generally Gardner is Perry Mason (tcot) and Fair is the DA, though there are a few that don’t fit.

I have not stock checked the full listing below but am pretty confident about finding them in the shop. I am sure I also have Hard Backs but will have to wait till I can next go to my shop.

I have not yet found out how to offer PayPal that allows choice, so if you are interested email me and I can send a PayPal invoice or accept credit card or bank transfer.

The Chartist Rising in Bradford

The Chartist Risings in Bradford

D.G. Wright. Bradford Libraries and Information Service, 1987. £3.00

Since the publication of AJ Peacock’s Bradford Chartism 1838-40, in 1969, there has been a great need of a continuation of the story, particularly to include the events in the tumultuous year of 1848, when Bradford played a crucial part in ‘the greatest mass movement of working class political and social protest in British history’. This opinion was emphasised but never elaborated upon some twenty years ago by FC Mather in his Historical Association pamphlet on Chartism, in which he stated that ‘the Bradford District of the West Riding was perhaps the most outstanding centre of physical force Chartism in England in the spring of 1848’. Until now it has only been possible to follow the story in newspapers of the period or in doctoral theses and so the appearance of David Wright’s booklet is to be greatly welcomed.

Few historians are better qualified to write upon this subject than Dr Wright, who for over twenty years has made a special study of the social and political history of nineteenth century Bradford, and the booklet does not disappoint. In particular he treads a judicious path between the importance of local details and the wider implications of regional and national events. Most important of all he gives full consideration to the effect Anglo-Irish relationships had upon Bradford’s volatile population during a period of great industrial unrest.

Almost thirty years ago Asa Briggs in Chartist Studies urged historians to recognise that the all-embracing concept of the six points of the Charter motivated different social groups in different times and places with differing degrees of intensity. Dr Wright has produced a model essay on the Briggs pattern in which he analyses Chartism in Bradford, from its roots in the Great Strike of 1825 to the Anti-Poor Law agitation in the late 1830s and on to the first rising in January 1840. But it is in the later events that the author breaks new ground, looking in detail at the Plug-drawing riots of 1842 and the more menacing threats to law and order in 1848. Of particular interest is the changing composition of both the Chartist leadership and its supporters during the whole period. At first the movement was dominated by men with English names, often hand-weavers from the outer townships, especially Horton, but after 1840 it took on an Irish tinge, being increasingly dominated by the bete-noir of the Bradford middle classes, the hard drinking, wife-beating George White, and his fellow-Irishman, John Smyth.

In retrospect Chartism seems to have been a dismal failure, but that point of view fails to do justice to important and enduring aspects of the movement that were without violent intent, notably the Temperance Chartists and those bodies concerned with Adult Education, Co-operation and Social Christianity. It also forgets the powerful radical political heritage which Chartism bestowed on the West Riding, for the radical tradition was nourished by memories of the stirring events of the 1840s. It is no coincidence that towards the end of the century the West Riding became the most important centre of Independent Labour Party activity, with Bradford always to the fore.
