Author: EDMONDS, E L AND O P
Title: I Was There The Memoirs of H.S. Tremenheere.
Description: Eton Windsor, Shakespeare Head Press, 1965, First edition. ISBN: 0906952077. Hardback, Dustjacket: Good. Size: 8vo. A selection from Tremenheere's own memoirs. Dust jacket with portrait, dark blue cloth-covered boards, silver titles to spine and front board, 147 pages, illustrations from photographs. Tremenheere was a public servant who served on many Royal Commissions, was in part responsible for many Acts of Parliament aimed at social reform, and also held the post of Inspector of Mines- although he himself describes this as a convenient title under which he could be paid for work overseeing the enforcement of the prohibition of women and children working underground, and reporting on the condition of the mining population. Condition: Dust jacket soiled and worn clean and bright other than dust soiling to top external page edges. Very Good.
