Yorkshire Past & Present: A History And Description Of The Three Ridings Of The Great County Of York, From The Earliest Ages To The Year 1870; With An Account Of Its Manufactures, Commerce, And Civil And Mechanical Engineering. By Edward & Thomas Baines.

The tops of the spine and a couple of the hinges need some attention, but this is not an ex-library copy it is not littered with stamps and stickers like many copies of this prestigious book that are on offer. All the plates are intact and most still have tissue paper protection.

A fascinating  collection on ‘Yorkshire, Past and Present’ by the English journalist and historian Thomas Baines. An informative history of the historic county of Yorkshire in Northern England from the ‘earliest ages’ till the text’s publication in the late nineteenth century. Baine’s comprehensive study not only explores the topography of the area and its points of interest, but also details an account of its manufactures, commerce, and civil and mechanical engineering. This two volume set written by Thomas Baines was published in four parts. Volume I division I and II, and volume II division I were published approximately in 1870. Volume II, division II, detailing the history of Yorkshire to a later date than the other volumes (1875) was published later than the earlier volumes due the author’s state of health, as explained in the errata slip inserted to the volume.  This copy also features an ‘Account of the Woolen Trade of Yorkshire’ by the author’s brother, Edward Baines junior, a nonconformist English newspaper editor and Member of Parliament. All volumes are undated. Illustrated with engravings of Yorkshire scenes, individuals and buildings.

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)

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.

Images of England SPEN VALLEY compiled by Norman Ellis

First printed in 2001 by Tempus 23cm X 16cm a 128 page soft cover book with two illustrations per page and accompanying text. Obviously as the images of the title are photographs the history it covers are mainly from 20th century. Though it is crammed full of photographs, many of which I have not seen in any other publications, there are copious notes that add much to the illustrations. A well put together addition to any Spen Valley collection. The Price below includes UK P&P In the shop £10.00

History of the SPEN VALLEY 1780 – 1980 – Douglas Hird

Hird Douglas - History of the Spen Valley

An essential book for any Spen Valley collection. Published in 1985 written by Douglas Hird who spent 25 years as a reporter in the Spen Valley.  Up until being nine year old he attended Brighton Street Junior and Infants School, but moved out when his family emigrated (to Dewsbury).

The book is well illustrated and has an index. Overlaps a bit with Peel but brings us well into 20th century. Unlike Thompson, this is a very entertaining read (written by a journalist and not a Librarian, not that I have anything against librarians that is). It does have many interesting facts that you will not find elsewhere. Not as detailed as some of the SV personal memoirs, but in some way more entertaining for that.

SPEN VALLEY – Reading list

The SPEN VALLEY a local History by Thomas William Thompson

Published in 1925 it originally appeared in the Heckmondwike Herald in column format, the deal done was to not take payment for in cash, but the type should be used to publish a limited edition in book form. That is why the book has very wide margins.
Thompson was the Librarian in Heckmondwike Library I don’t think he had any formal training as an Historian. The book is 355 pages long and usefully has an index but no illustrations. Overfull of lists of men, in some cases with questionable merit as to the reason for inclusion. The book for the most part looks to the History of the Spen Valley through the lens of the History of England with not a great deal of real “local” content, unless you count the lists of men.
I must admit I didn’t get off to a good start when he seemed to imply that prior to the Roman Conquest the Valley was inhabited by tribes of Hunter Gatherers, he seems to have missed the Bronze and Iron age altogether. I must excuse a lot of his opinions as writing in the 20’s the “Dark Ages” were still dark. He is very skimpy on two themes that are very much of Spen Valley History, the Luddites and Chartists.
Whatever my views, if you are seriously into Local History you need to read this book. If you are building a Spen Valley Book collection you need to own one.
I currently have a copy for sale for £45

The Brontes in the Spen Valley – Mabel Ferrett

My irrational antipathy to the cult of the Brontes has prevented me from reading this, but having read other works by Mabel I have no doubts about readability. This copy would be fine but for the annotations (just highlighting paragraphs really) by a previous owner, because of that I am offering it at a reduced price.
