Herbert and Mary Jackson were local historians who wrote several booklets and books on the history of Maryport and the wider Cumberland area. They published these books and booklets themselves, and their publications have now become quite rare and very much sought after by people with an interest in the subject.
Condition of the booklet is generally good. The covers have several minor scuffs and blemishes, and some light nibbling along the edges, but the staple spine is intact and all pages are intact, unblemished and bound.
