I have original copies of Baines's History, Directory & Gazetter of The County of York 1822 & 3. They are in constant near daily use and wouldn't be without them. For historians or just about anyone intersted in the History of the Ancient Ridings - which still exist though some would have you believe otherwise - they are invaluable.
Being in constant use, and no doubt prior to me, the volumes are not in mint condition. I doubt Edward Baines would have wanted that either.
Thank you for putting them on line.
