Besterman 3397. "Library" means here "bibliography," rather than a particular collection. Works about or referring to "Lancashire places, persons, or things" (preface). Lancashire provenance counts only for "some few theological pamphlets printed in the 17th century." The preface suggests, without clarifying the point, that the author may have restricted himself to items in Lancashire libraries. (Entries do not indicate location.) About 1,250 items, arranged by topic and subtopic. "Biography" includes "Family History." Entries are sometimes annotated, and may include information on authors. Includes some publications of the Chetham Society. Bookplate. Writing on front flyleaf, fore-edge. Inside hinges cracked. Shaken. Bumped, wear along shoulders, soiled.
