Pearson's Gossipy Guide to Ilfracombe, Clovelly, Lynton and Lynmouth, Combmartin, Barnstaple, Westward Ho!, Bideford and the North Devon coast

by

Cyril Arthur Pearson

London, C.A. Pearson & Co. Ltd (1919), xxxiv; 174 pp.

Prepared by Michael Steer

By about 1914, Ilfracombe and the general North Devon coastal region were well-established as a holiday playground for young and old from a wide range of social and geographical backgrounds. The region appeared to thrive on the variety of its experience, as residential and retirement functions also increased in importance. But in the new conditions of post-war society the expectations raised in its preceding Edwardian heyday proved illusory. In most essentials Ilfracombe, for example, remained the product of its 19th century creators: an inheritance that provides much of its present-day charm. The first (Introductory) section of this lavishly illustrated Guide Book focuses on hotels, cabs, railways and a variety of amusements. There is a General Index, pp 148-50. The remainder of the guide introduces Ilfracombe and is a compendium of information, for example, advertisements for the printer's products, deemed useful to the holidaymaker. The Gossipy Guidebooks series ran to 18 other Guide Books at the time of this book's publication. This rare and much sought-after book was produced digitally by Google from a copy in the University of California Library collection and can be downloaded from HathiTrust. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. These books, on which copyright has expired, are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
