Ripon: W. Harrison & Son (C. Harker), 1922. Pale green paper covers with black titles. Advert for a similar book to the rear panel. This is the Third Edition, with the price One Shilling boldly printed to the front panel. Adverts to the inside covers. Stapled. A nice clean copy. Small stamp with "west lodge, Fountains Abbey" to the front cover - perhaps the then bookshop for the Abbey? Light rusting to the staples, otherwise clean and tidy inside and out. Not a first, but a very early edition of this guide to the Cistercian ruins. Black and white photographs throughout. [x], 48, [x], pp.
