Dalesman

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.

Dalesman 1939 04 April #2 (2).jpg

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 £5 with a photocopy of the missing piece.

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.

It is getting much harder to find. I only have one copy for sale, at £30.00

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

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.

The Chartist Rising in Bradford

The Chartist Risings in Bradford

D.G. Wright. Bradford Libraries and Information Service, 1987. £3.00

Since the publication of AJ Peacock’s Bradford Chartism 1838-40, in 1969, there has been a great need of a continuation of the story, particularly to include the events in the tumultuous year of 1848, when Bradford played a crucial part in ‘the greatest mass movement of working class political and social protest in British history’. This opinion was emphasised but never elaborated upon some twenty years ago by FC Mather in his Historical Association pamphlet on Chartism, in which he stated that ‘the Bradford District of the West Riding was perhaps the most outstanding centre of physical force Chartism in England in the spring of 1848’. Until now it has only been possible to follow the story in newspapers of the period or in doctoral theses and so the appearance of David Wright’s booklet is to be greatly welcomed.

Few historians are better qualified to write upon this subject than Dr Wright, who for over twenty years has made a special study of the social and political history of nineteenth century Bradford, and the booklet does not disappoint. In particular he treads a judicious path between the importance of local details and the wider implications of regional and national events. Most important of all he gives full consideration to the effect Anglo-Irish relationships had upon Bradford’s volatile population during a period of great industrial unrest.

Almost thirty years ago Asa Briggs in Chartist Studies urged historians to recognise that the all-embracing concept of the six points of the Charter motivated different social groups in different times and places with differing degrees of intensity. Dr Wright has produced a model essay on the Briggs pattern in which he analyses Chartism in Bradford, from its roots in the Great Strike of 1825 to the Anti-Poor Law agitation in the late 1830s and on to the first rising in January 1840. But it is in the later events that the author breaks new ground, looking in detail at the Plug-drawing riots of 1842 and the more menacing threats to law and order in 1848. Of particular interest is the changing composition of both the Chartist leadership and its supporters during the whole period. At first the movement was dominated by men with English names, often hand-weavers from the outer townships, especially Horton, but after 1840 it took on an Irish tinge, being increasingly dominated by the bete-noir of the Bradford middle classes, the hard drinking, wife-beating George White, and his fellow-Irishman, John Smyth.

In retrospect Chartism seems to have been a dismal failure, but that point of view fails to do justice to important and enduring aspects of the movement that were without violent intent, notably the Temperance Chartists and those bodies concerned with Adult Education, Co-operation and Social Christianity. It also forgets the powerful radical political heritage which Chartism bestowed on the West Riding, for the radical tradition was nourished by memories of the stirring events of the 1840s. It is no coincidence that towards the end of the century the West Riding became the most important centre of Independent Labour Party activity, with Bradford always to the fore.
