pp56. Influential collection of comical illustrations of scenes from daily life around the city of Manchester, with alphabetical poems from Ancoats via Heaton Park and (The) Guardian to (Bellevue) Zoo. Bound in original printed card wrappers, a little discoloured and a couple of stains; internally near fine, printed on high quality paper with a short poem by Oldham opposite reproductions of his characterful line drawings. Worldcat locates BL, NLS, Cambridge, and John Rylands only. Roger Oldham was a member of the Manchester Society of Architects and such is the sway of this little quarto that 2014 saw the publication of A New Manchester Alphabet, inspired by Oldham's original work.
