THE ESSENTIAL WEST RIDING

  • Paperback/Hardback: 200 pages
  • Publisher: Dalesman Publishing Co Ltd; New edition (10 April 1987)

The West Riding may have ceased to exist in name, but not in spirit. The rich diversity of the Riding – the bleak moors, the dirt blackened industrial towns, its inhabitants’ rugged individuality and vagaries of speech – still provoke a fierce pride in those who are born there. Herbert Whone displays a deep sympathy with the ‘beauty and utility” of the place, and his numerous photographs depict this rugged landscape with a stark simplicity. They are accompanied by quotations from many sources, and together they capture a now vanishing way of life that the old West Riding lives on in the dialects that are still spoken, and in the cobbled streets and mills that are a record of the homes and work places of earlier generations.

NURSERY RHYMES FOR ADULT CHILDREN

  • Hardcover
  • Publisher: Tallis Press; First edition (1985)
  • Language English
  • ISBN-10: 0284986674
  • ISBN-13: 978-0284986672

Life is a serious business – but it is essentially a game. When the rules of the game are seen we are entitled to an inner chuckle. The Nursery Rhyme is more appropriate to this chuckle and may perhaps be a reminder to we adults, that we are still children at primary school. The sense of play in the work of life is the highest achievement of adulthood, and is as much in the painter’s brush, as in the playing of a musical instrument or the word games of poetry. Life is a game but is essentially a serious business.

THE SIMPLICITY OF PLAYING THE VIOLIN

  • Paperback/Hardback: 128 pages
  • Publisher: Gollancz; New edition edition (1 Mar 1989)
  • Language English
  • ISBN-10: 0575045124
  • ISBN-13: 978-0575045125

This is a book intended purely for violinists – performers, teachers and amateurs. Mr. Whone takes in turn every aspect of violin playing – and discusses with them in such a way as to make the reader understand each process as a separate entity. His approach is to analyse each necessary movement at its simplest so that it can be carried out with the greatest efficiency with no unnecessary fuss. He reduces each element of technique, control, and application to music, to its simplest form, eliminating the inessential factors that have so often crept into both teaching and performance. (With a forward by Sir Colin Davies).
