AN auction is to be held to raise money for a long-forgotten book about the Brontes.
Money from Sunday's event will go towards publishing a copy The Father Of The Brontes, a reprint of an 1897 book with a foreword by the Bishop of Wakefield, the Rt Rev Stephen Platten.
The book about Patrick Bronte - father of sisters Anne, Charlotte and Emily - was written by W W Yates.
The event has been organised by Imelda Marsden, of Mirfield, who is conservation and heritage representative for The Bronte Society.
Mrs Marsden has added new information about the clergyman's descendants, including his niece, Rose Ann Heslip, whose grave was discovered at Whitechapel churchyard in Cleckheaton several months ago.
Proceeds from the sale of the 350 copies will go to the Holly Bank School in Mirfield for disabled young people.
The auction at the Dusty Miller pub on Dunbottle Lane in Mirfield will be held at 7.30pm on Sunday.
Items include a tie worn by TV presenter Richard Whiteley who died this year, a show programme signed by Patrick Stewart and a signed postcard from TV gardening expert Charlie Dimmock.
People are welcome to take other items for auction to the pub from 9am that day, but no electrical items can be accepted.
