Durham County Council Press 1951
320pp illustrated with b/w photographs, plans, including some fold outs and diagrams. Red cloth as issued. Signature of Jonathan Wager on front end paper. Good copy.

A concept that led depressingly to the decline of much of West Durham as the designation stigmatised the old mining areas of the County.
