Description: Leeds England, Richard Jackson 1885 color plates [28 of trades/workers as they were} in 1814 by George Walker . elephant portfolio LIMITED EDITION this Number 6 of 600. The text is usually in English with French on the verso but in the "cloth Dresser" the french text only is present and in three cases the text is lacking. These would make beautiful pictures for framing and altho' I abhor books broken for their plates here, as there are 12 plates missing in this set, it would make for beautiful framable pictures. WE HAVE: The Horse Dealer, Cloth Makers, Fishermen[actually also women] Cloth Dressers, Lowkers, Stone breakers on a Road, Ruddle Pit men, fool plough[ers], Cranbery gatherers, Milk boy, Rape Threshing, Wolds Waggon & driver, Sea bathing group, Whalebone scrapers, A Moor guide, Preemer Boy, Teasel Field work, Line Swinglers, Peat Carters, 3 plates of differ York Malitia soldiers, Alum Workers, Leech finders [presumably for medicinal use], Factory Children, Bishop Blaize's [Procession], Wensley Dale Knitters [Men,Women & children] MISSING ARE Collier, Dog Breaker, Woman making Oat cakes, Nor & Spell[??], Another Militiaman, Riding Stang[??] a Woman Spinning, Hawking, Cloth Hall, Midsummer Eve, Sheffield Cutler and Jockies.
