Excerpt from The Poets of Keighley, Bingley, Haworth and District: Being Biographies and Poems of Various Authors of the Above Neighbourhood

The aim of the Editor ol' this work has been to bring together the best poems, with original biographies of poets. Who by birth or residence are connected with the district of Keighley, Bingley, Haworth and adjacent townships. That there was at least a fair demand for such a volume as the one now before its readers is amply evidenced by the number of subscribers: many of whom. Incidentally hearing that the work was in progress. Sent in their names. Promiscuously, for Copies.

It is probable that some authors are omitted who are entitled to a place in these pages - the Publishers will be glad to have the names ofsueh, with a view to inserting them in the next edition, which is already in a state of preparation. The Second Edition, will contain about fifty additional pages, and will be rendered valuable from the fact that it will possess a sheet of fae-simile Autographs of nearly every author who has a place in its pages. It was originally the Editor's intention to have such a plate in this volume, but he decided not to issue it in an incomplete state. As on the eve of going to press with the last sheet he discovered that, with a little work, it was possible to obtain the signatures of several authors whom he had long vainly endeavoured to secure.
