A set of ‘Wainwright’ owned and annotated by the Lakeland writer John Cunliffe, creator of Postman Pat and a longtime resident of Kendal.

Seven volumes from Cunliffe’s library, all later editions from the 1970s and afterwards in well-used condition. The first volume has Cunliffe’s ownership inscription to the front pastedown ‘John and Sylvia Cunliffe 17 March 1973 Brighton’; Cunliffe has laminated the jacket of this volume. In it he notes at the head of the ‘Ascent from Patterdale’ page ‘31 Aug 1981 Alone - on to Fairfield and descent via Hartsop above How. A good walk!’ Each of the volumes has similar scattered annotations recording his walks through the Lakeland Fells. At the beginning of Volume III the author notes: ‘John Cunliffe 1 February 1973 Windermere. Bought the day following my interview at Charlotte Mason College of Education, Ambleside. I will look forward to climbing all these peaks!’ John Cunliffe (1933-2018) drew upon Lakeland's small towns and villages to provide inspiration for his most famous character, Postman Pat, lending these volumes a particular poignancy.
