An original handwritten ringers notebook

Hello Everyone,

I have been offered an original handwritten ringer's notebook, probably 
dating back to the early 1800's.  The book plate says 'Ernest Bryan Gipps'.

The title is 'A key to the art of Ringing', which is the printed title 
page.  The next page, also printed, says 'Northumberland Yorkshire'.   
There are then three pages of instructions and the rest of the 32 page 
book is handwritten.

Does anyone have an idea who Ernest Bryan Gipps is or where he rang?

What would a book of this type be worth?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Best wishes

Alan Ellis
