Micelee: The Tale Of A Northumbrian Village (signed by the author)

£19.99

Product description

Published by The Pentland Press in 2000, this hardback first edition is in a good, used condition overall and has been signed by the author in black ink on the first endpaper. The dustjacket is unpriceclipped but there are a few spots on the inside and it is a little rubbed along the top edge. The brown cloth boards are gilt-stamped on the spine. Illustrated throughout with black and white pictures, maps and illustrations, the text block appears to be clean and free from annotations, although again there are a few spots on the edge of the block. 'Micelee' is a social history centred around the small Northumbrian village of Mickley. It studies its progression through nearly a thousand years. We learn of its people and their families, the development of farming, mining and the coming of the railway to the area, education, religion, domestic routine and many other topics. All serve to paint a vivid portrait of times gone by. Peppered with the author's tongue-in-cheek humour and his wry reflections on the state of mankind then and now, not to mention his illustrations and wonderful photographs, Micelee makes a truly captivating study into this delightful part of the North East.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
