The Dalesman was first published in March of 1939 as “The Yorkshire Dalesman”. From March 1939 to November 2020 At the moment I have every issue in stock along with other “Dalesman” publications I have a total of 1206 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 £5 with a photocopy of the missing piece.

The thing about being a second hand book dealer is you can only acquire what you find (at a price that allows a margin of profit to help pay the electric bill). Today’s batch demonstrates this, I did decide not to buy the “Folio’s” on offer as they were not perfect and the price was what I would sell them for.

I don’t restrict myself to the “Dalesman” magazine, I look out for all their publications even when they stray out of God’s Own County (GOC).
Exploring: The Lake District, North Yorkshire Moors and the Yorkshire Coast (three Books)
Lakeland A to Z
Peak District Walks
Shepherds Crooks and Walking Sticks
Walking in; Airedale : Bronte Country : North Yorkshire Moors : Lower Wharfedale : Upper Wharfedale
Yorkshire Mysteries and Oddities
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”.
