Handbook to Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire: Prepared for the Members of the British Association for the Advancement of Science on the Occasion of their Visit to Hull, in September 1922

Abstract

THE ideal handbook in connexion with the annual visits of the British Association has yet to be written, but it would be unfair if we withheld the full meed to the editor and sub-committee who have produced this interesting publication. It approaches nearer to our ideal than that issued at any previous meeting; so far as possible technicalities have been avoided, for the work is not intended for the expert, who already knows the special works and articles relating to the different subjects treated of. It is essentially a guide for the average member who wishes to learn something of the history, archaeology, antiquities, folk-lore, geology, natural history, and economics of the town and district in which the parliament of science has recently been held.
