The GYPSY DREAM BOOK – 1001 Dreams Explained

Gypsy 450

This 64 page booklet gives no indication of the author or date of publication. Published by the proprietors of Popular Fiction with a cover illustration by H W Perl. I can find an illustration of the cover on-line but nothing else about the booklet.

What fascinated me though was who the publishers thought would be attracted to the book, if their choice of adverts is anything to go by. They are offered solutions for every ailment and deviation from perfection with off the shelf solutions. Too fat, too thin, poor legs, eyes, bust, skin and everything else you could think of including Old Age.

I don’t know if the explanation of dreams is accurate though I have little confidence in the medical advice offered.

The History of Batley 1800-1974 by Malcolm H. Haigh

The History of Batley 1800 -1974 by Malcolm H Haigh in 1978 reprinted twice but still hard to find. The fact the Malcolm was a journalist must have contributed to the fact that this is a fantastically readable book. I am a great fan of local history books but some are badly written, as not everybody however they love local history are good authors which is why I have not tried to write one myself. I have a copy without d.j. £25.00

Published by Max Parrish in 1957. 188 pages with index. Theodore Cooke Taylor was more than a Woollen Manufacturer. A Liberal MP who fought the Chinese Opium Trade. He was a pioneer, and probably the most successful exponent of profit sharing in industry. Still at his desk at the age of 102.

Batley & District Hospital Bazaar Souvenir Handbook 1926

Pretty tatty copy, but where else would you find one. 104 pages with a bit of history and of a few people and buildings, the old, present and proposed hospitals. But to me the greatest interest is in the local advertisements (there are a number of national adverts). The best illustration to me though was the Batley Co-op. SOLD
