A 1948 reprint both book and dj vg+. All about Arran for Holiday Maker, Hiker, Mountaineer, Historian, Geologist and Naturalist, no mention of Chief Cook and Bottle washer. 164 pages 170 X 110cm (I would normally have used inches but 1/2 inches make it difficult to type.

I offer it at £2.50 (+p&p if you are not visiting my shop)

DALESMAN – Partial update

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.

Dalesman Mini Books

Dalesman 39 to 44

Sorry they are so small but you can get the gist.


CUMBRIA & Lake District Magazine

I have started listing Cumbria Magazines as part of my quest to list all “Dalesman” publications. I have not started with the full year packages I have in the shop but with a few loose ones I have found scattered about.

Cumbria 1967 08 August 048

Cumbria 1967 08 August 048-COLLAGE

Cumbria 1982 06 June180-COLLAGE

All these are from the covers so you can see why I am attracted to “Dalesman” publications. I realise that you may be uses to picking these up in charity shops for 50p or so and I am asking £2.50, that is because I have to buy store and store them, and they are worth £2.50.

Penguin Guides

I have only shown once as the covers are to all intents and purposes the same.

Penguin G019
Somerset : Cornwall :  Devon : Derbyshire : Lake District :  Wilts and Dorset : North Wales &  Kent all available at £2.5 each (some with dj some without)
