Riley, W. - Through A Yorkshire Window. Herbert Jenkins. Not dated, 5th impression, '50s? (might be 1930s???; [originally published 1919])
A solitary man seeks health in the lonely places of the Pennines. He lights upon a typical Yorkshire village, where he takes up his abode, living the simple life of the natives, and finding everywhere the hand of friendship extended towards him. The villagers and dwellers in these remote places are drawn with sympathy, knowledge and understanding; and their experiences are told with humanity. (prelim). 7½" x 5", 320pp plus 8 plates, green cloth, hardback. Illustrated with 8 monochrome photographs.
A few 'spots'/marks to boards; edge-foxing; corners rounded; very slight edge wear; top 1" x 4¼" front corner of front-free endpaper removed; slight endpaper browning; some 'foxing' reaction between text paper and coating of plates; the odd internal fox spot; good, solid copy; no wrapper.
