All are available along with many other Dalesman publications, though if you intend visiting my shop and you are interested let me know as they are all at home as I intend getting round to reading them, especially the “walking” books. As the bumper sticker should say “Bibliophiles just read about it”.
A selection of hardbacks all early 20th century editions in very attractive printed boards all in very good condition.

I should have taken a photo of the spines as they all have great illustrations on them, these are very attractive books.

What it says on the tin but I must mention the two plates, great illustrations of Marx and Engels.
Not a publication one would expect from “Progress”
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.

From Conan to Prehistoric man, come to think of it not probably all that far. The rarest book today is Edgar Mowrers – Germany Puts the Clock Back – the first Penguin Special and on a different vein HG Wells – The Cone. The Arabs in History by Bernard Lewis is also a rare title. Not that any of the other books are common in these formats.
