Yorkshire Lyrics.

Poems written in the dialect as spoken in the West Riding of Yorkshire. To which are added a selection of Fugitive Verses not in the dialect. By John Hartley,

Author of "Clock Almanack," "Yorkshire Puddin," "Yorkshire Tales" &c, &c,

"It has not been my lot to pore O'er ancient tomes of Classic lore, Or quaff Castalia's springs; Yet sometimes the observant eye May germs of poetry descry In plain and common things."

London: W. Nicholson & Sons, Limited, 26, Paternoster Square, E. C. and Albion Works, Wakefield.

Dedication. To my dear daughter, Annie Sophie, this collection of dialect verses is dedicated, as a token of sincere love. John Hartley. Christmas, 1898.
