Reminiscences of Old Sheffield

£55.00

Product description

Reminiscences of Old Sheffield: Its Streets and Its People by Robert Eadon Leader. Published by Leader and Sons, Independent Office, 1875.

From the Preface: "This book does not claim to be anything so dignified as history. It is only a gathering together of the various threads out of which history is woven-threads which, if not seized and put into tangible shape, quickly escape altogether. Our local annals afford many illustrations of the loss that has been sustained through want of persons who would take the trouble carefully to chronicle small details, and no one can be fully conscious of that misfortune until he rises from the compilation of such a work as this. If each past generation for (say) a hundred and fifty years, had possessed its Cap'n Cuttle, who would not only have made a note of what he found, but have left that note where others could find it, my labours would have been greatly lightened."

Hardback, first edition from 1875. Intricate detailing on covers and spine. Front cover practically detached from book. Back cover is also very loosely attached. Brown spots and marks appear on lots of the pages. Pages relatively well attached to spine. Various marks on front and back covers. Corners worn.
