Briercliffe, Harold

Cycling's Touring Guides. Northern England. (No.1)

Published: London: The English Universities Press for Temple Press, 1947


First edition. Signed presentation copy: To Jim, with compliments. From Harold, July 17, 1947 (inscribed on title page). Block-printed pictorial card wrappers. 109pp, plus 25pp prelims and nice pictorial trade adverts. With line drawing vignettes by Frank Patterson, and 16 b&w photos in plates. Evocative of their era, these lovely cycling guides covered the whole of Britain; signed copies are rare. Briercliffe's routes were cycled by Clare Balding in Britain by Bike on BBC4 recently. Three others of the series (not signed) also available.

Very Good. Bright, clean wrappers with a few light marks to back, rubbed edges with abrasions to spine affecting title. Pages clean, light spotting to ends and top edge.
