There are some excellent maps & beautiful prints. It says that the pastoral in the spectator of Colin and Phoebe was written by a Mr Byrom ... Mr E says it is a very valuable book.'

With the temporary closure of Sheffield Archives perhaps this thread could provide some entertainment for newer Members, took a lot of effort and not a little money - give it a read; pass comment on your finds.

Most of all enjoy.

Hello all, quite a while since I was here. I see that Google Books have now scanned the original 'Hunters' (1819) and it it freely available at

http://books.google.com/books/about/Hallamshire.html?id=QCE2AAAAQAAJ

I managed to purchase myself a copy of this very hard to find book a few months ago on eBay, and am delighted with it. Now, I had always known that Alfred Gatty did a revised version (mostly using Hunter's own details) that was published circa 1869, but oddly enough, only a few weeks ago I came across a 'Gatty' Hallamshire for sale that is obviously later than 1869 as it mentions events several years after this date. Needless to say, I bought this copy too. Somewhere, I know not where, I seem to recall reading that Gatty published a second edition (therefore 'Hallamshire III') which was essentially his first edition, though incorprated in the text was his own 'Sheffield Past And Present' (1873). Does anyone have any details or knowledge of this particular publication?
