Herbert Sutcliffe. Yorkshire & England 1919-1945. An interesting collection of letters to and from a James Savage in the early 1960s. The majority relate to Savage trying to publish a biography he has written about (and in collaboration with) Sutcliffe. The correspondence appears to start on 21st August 1964 when Savage asks Sutcliffe for 'an hour or two of your time... I have a few questions that I would like to put to you about your early and retirement days', followed by another dated 24th October 1964 in which he sends a copy of the typescript. An undated reply (probably early November 1964), from and nicely signed in ink by Sutcliffe, relates to Sutcliffe's own clarifications and corrections to the typescript which he describes as 'really magnificent... no words of mine could adequately thank you for your wonderful tributes' and his belief that 'I do not think you will have any difficulty in finding a publisher', also Sutcliffe's request for a royalty. On 13th November 1964, Savage writes again explaining this is his 'first venture in preparing a book and I am an untried writer'. There then follows a series of letters sent in 1965 submitting the book to numerous prospective publishers and subsequent letters of rejection. In a letter to Sutcliffe dated 5th July 1965 Savage lists the publishers to whom he has submitted manuscripts, and expresses his concern that the book will not get published. It would appear that the book never was published, there being no record of it or any other by Savage in Padwick. G/VG
