Northumberland & Durham. Thomas Sharp.

Northumberland & Durham. A Shell Guide.

London: Faber and Faber, [1939]. 8vo. First edition, second issue. Original off white cloth, overprinted in black on the spine, with ring binding inside. Errata slip bound in at the start of the Introductory Note. Four colour maps and black and white photographs throughout. Clipped d/w is a bit rubbed, especially along the top edge which has some nicks and small loss. Near fine in very good + dust-wrapper. Item #4888

The photograph on page 23 is of the 'King Bull of the Chillingham wild cattle taken from as near as its photographer dared venture'. The image is rather blurred. When Faber and Faber took over publication in 1939, they reissued existing titles with a new title page to indicate the change of publisher and put the original limp-covered ring binding in practical stiff cloth boards. The dust-wrapper reproduces the original paper cover illustrations.

Price: £90.00
