I now have 1,101 “Dalesman publications” catalogued (large numbers of “Cumbria” yet to do) please contact me if you are looking for anything in particular.
Just added two new Dalesman publications to my stock that takes me up to 999 different magazines and books. Both these titles I am offering for £2.50 but as my next acquisition will be my 1000th it is about time to have another go at cataloguing them.
Just to give a flavour of some of the other titles.
Sorry they are so small but you can get the gist.
I did debate about showing all the covers as the illustration only changes once (apart from colour, for Americans that’s color ) but they do have an index of sorts on the cover.

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.

If you inclined to visit old houses, or wonder over moors, why buy a new guide when the old ones do the job just as well and in many instance much better. So if you are planning trips out pop into your local second hand book shop and pick up a guide for a lot less than you would pay to the National Trust who have much too much money anyway.

The Dalesman was first published in March of 1939 as “The Yorkshire Dalesman”. From March 1939 to 2003 I have all but 6 months in stock, along with other “Dalesman” publications I have a total of 973 items in stock offered for sale.
The Dalesman is still going strong and is the UK’s best selling regional magazine, I would obviously claim it is the best regional magazine as it is about the best County in England or indeed the world.
They make excellent Birthday or anniversary presents, much better than a Birthday card for Yorkshire Lads and Lasses.
The Index for Number one includes; Dales Folk by Ella Pontefract, Historian wanted for Kettleswelldale by C J Cutcliffe-Hyne, A Yorkshire Climbing Nursery by Godfrey Wilson, The Man of the Dales by W Riley, Past and Present in the Dales by M’Duke Miller, Do you know the Hill Brunillo? by Lettice Cooper, Adult Education in Craven, What Town Planning Means by F R Birkhead, It was still raining by Leonard Cooper, The Vacant Wine-Red Moor by Donald Boyd, The “Three Peaks”, Stories of Craven’s Grand Old Man by Norman Thorner and Public Access to Mountains by A Creech Jones MP.
I do have an ambition to list all the idiocies in a searchable data-base, but as I say, that is an ambition.
I do have a copy of number one with half the front page missing (cover) I am willing to sell that for £10 with a photocopy of the missing piece.
