Price: £65.00

Book Condition: Very Good- with no dust jacket


A rather curious publication by R. Winston Jones, who at the time of publication was an Ex Chief Inspector of the Pembrokeshire Police, Haverfordwest. A plastic spiral bound publication with no printer shown, glazed card covers with black titling and a heraldic logo. The Title page is the cover and internally the pages are properly printed but the Illustrations are printed rather like photocopies. The book starts at the Contents, then continues with the Introduction, followed by the Preface by the Author, then Chapter 1 to the end. (2) + 61 pp. Illustrated in b/w. At the foot of the first page - here the Contents page - it states " The Picture overleaf depicts Tower Hill and the Haverfordwest Borough Police Station ... The same picture forms the inside cover of this book." There is no picture on either of the inside covers, and after a lot of research I can can find no trace of this as a book, or indeed any other copies of this item listed (apart from the copy I have for sale) ? . Contents cover : - The Old System; Formation of the Police Force; Major Changes 1850; Further Changes 1861; A Period of Stability; The End of the Force 1889. PLUS 7 Appendices. Covers have some discolouration and light wear, the front cover is spotted/patchy (pale lemon spots) and has a top corner crease. Internally Very Good, Clean, Tight and Bright, and with NO Inscriptions. Written for the Centenary of the Foundation of the Haverfordwest Borough Police Force, founded in 1835 and consisting of just 4 Officers! Very Scarce. See Images. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall
