When the Free Library of Plymouth Committee, in 1876, was appointing a librarian, Mr. Wright was selected to fill the post. Beside numerous contributions to periodical literature, he published 'the Visitors' Guide to Mount Edgecumbe,' 1871; 'The Illustrated Newquay Guide and Visitors' Hand Book,' 1885; and 'The Illustrated Hand Book to Plymouth, Devonport and Stonehouse,' 1885.
