1840/1 Bentley's Directory - Worcestershire


Cat No.:   GB0034:

Here we have seven volumes on one CD, the volumes were published in 1840 and 1841, and then in 1841 also issued combined into two leather bound books, which cover the whole county of Worcestershire.

The volumes contain tens of thousands of names, addresses, trades & occupations, and a comprehensive description of every place in the county and and its history. Bear in mind that directories such as this do not include just businesses, but anyone with a trade. So that includes normal people such as gardeners, dress makers, chimney sweeps, and so on.

In addition, we have a large hand coloured full county map of Worcestershire of 1840 - and also superbly detailed street maps of Dudley and Worcester - a great rarity in old directories, as the maps have usually been removed.

That's not all. There are dozens of pages of the most delightful trade advertisements, beautifully and finely engraved.
