The London Directory of 1677


Cat No.:   GB1369:


The London Directory of 1677 is the oldest printed list of the Merchants & Bankers of London. Re-printed in 1878, and arranged alphabetically by surname.

A charming description of the contents appears before the preface;

"A collection of the names of the merchants living in and about the City of London; Very useful and necessary. Carefully collected for the benefit of all Dealers that shall have occasion with any of them; Directing them to at the first sight of their name, to the place of their abode."

Also contains a separate list of all of London's Goldsmiths in 1677.

A book first published just a few years after the Great Fire of 1666. An absolute gem for historians and family history researchers.
