The Songs of the Mountaineers – edited by John Hirst for The Rusksack Club
Condition – Acceptable – Soft cover, cloth. End covers bent to thumb, some age related wear, penned inscription to front cover dated 1922. Reasonably clean pages throughout, slight pull away around page 25 from spine but still together. 124 pages.
OLB first “Song” book of which seems well known out there in book land. Quite a little gem having had a good look through it. With songs entitled “The Lancashire Rucksacker”, “Gibberish” and “Skye Boat Song” I expect for those that know the tunes it would be a wonderful trip down memory lane? (Sorry, but “Benny” the cat is part of OLB and lives here so not part of the sale).
Size; 7 x 5 inch, around 12mo. Printed by W. Allen Corner, Manchester - Circa 1910.
