Catherine McIlwaine was quite nice and checked the Bodleian copy for us - it also does not have the dustjacket, sadly. Sounds like that library followed pretty much the same policy as the British Library.

By one of those weird coincidences that happen in life, I have just had a lucky find of a poor condition, but dust-jacketed, copy of Huddersfield Dialect.
The jacket, of course, aligns with the Wade image used for the facsimile but is not price-clipped.
So I have added some closeups of the price on the inside flap. Let me know if you want me to upload any more images.
For those who are curious, the book itself does not have the gild coat of arms on the cover.

Nice find! And thanks for sharing the pictures of your dustjacket. One of two currently known, so rarer than Songs for the Philologists. Probably not as pricey though.

Excellent find! looks like I need to get rid of the italics on the price, and then it'll be near enough!

I suspect there will be more of them out there. Probably mostly in West Yorkshire, waiting to be discovered.

Gawain, could I be cheeky and ask for a photo or scan of the upper cover for TolkienBooks.net?

Of course, Deagol. I intended to send you one as well as posting here and then forgot. I'll try both scanning and photo and PM you both.

oops strike that I don't seem to be able to PM an image so I'm posting them here. The top corner is missing so message me back Deagol if you'd like me to scan or photo differently.

Corrected flap price positioning/font + adjusted positioning of offices downwards slightly based on new photo.
