Old cartoon book has been recreated

The former owner of Scrivener’s Bookshop in Buxton, Alastair Scrivener, found some loose pages from a scarce book of 50 cartoons about Buxton, originally published in the town’s newspaper in 1873 and then in the book in 1879.

Alastair’s pages were worn and incomplete but after some research the bookshop has found the only remaining complete copy, and  have reprinted a new edition of 50 copies which are available at the bookshop.
