The History of Hyde and Its Neighbourhood
Seller ID: 648
Hyde: Higham Press, 1932. First edition (frontis., xxxiv, 578 pp., photo's). A hundred or so b&w illustrations and photo's, some full-page and some cut in text. In dark blue half cloth and gray paper covered boards, gilt titles. This is the sequel, or as Middleton suggests, an enlargement and expansion to the present of his Annals of Hyde (c. 1900) and includes chapters on the World War and its aftermath with 'reminiscences of, and notes on the antiquities, traditions, folk-lore, and history of Denton, Haughton, Dukinfield, Mottram, Longendale, Bredbury, Marple, and the adjoining townships.' Absent front free endpaper, corners worn through, repaired outside hinge; otherwise a clean tight copy of a scarce local history.
