Preface by Rev. J. C. Atkinson. Original pale blue cloth, lettered and decorated in gilt; patterned endpapers. Corners bumped, some patchy sunning on rear board, browning on prelims, good. Five folk tales: Jeanie o'Biggersdale, A Jael of the Nineteenth Century, The Bridestones, The Witch of Wintergill and Honor Blake. Atkinson published collections of fairy and folk tales, as well as local history, and ends his preface "It is a pity to think what a wealth of interesting folklore has been lost in this district of Cleveland for want of careful and intelligent collectors".
