Product description

Ho for the Borders - Michael Brander (1964) - vintage hardback local interest book
 
Michael Brander (with photographs by Alex Brown), "Ho for the Borders" (London, Geoffrey Bles, 1964, first edition). Vintage hardback book (red cloth boards), 212pp plus introductory pages and several pages of black and white photographs, inside covers / endpapers printed with a map of the Borders, measuring approximately 14.3 x 20.4 x 2.1cm (5.65 x 8.05 x 0.85in). "There is no other part of this country so fought over, so rich in history and legend, or so greatly renowned in verse and ballad as the Borders [i.e the region around the border between England and Scotland]. A Borderer myself, on my mother's side, I realised how little I knew about the country between Hadrian's Wall and Berwick and I decided to learn more ... It has been my aim to show as far as possible how the Borders have developed as they have and why the Borderers remain the sturdy individualists they are."
 
No dustjacket; there is minor age wear to the cover including scuffs, marks and a couple of stains, whilst there is some fading and a water stain to the spine with bumping to the spine edges; the front endpaper bears an old pre-decimal price in pencil; the pages are slightly yellowed with occasional slight marks but are otherwise in good clean condition overall.
