The Guide, in its 10th edition, is an interesting product of the booming West Country tourism industry. Besides its myriad pleasantly evocative photographs, the book is a treasury of commercial advertisements of North Devon's post-World War business-boom. Its author claims that the region is well served by "rail, steamer and motor routes" and that these have brought the region within reach of a great many people to whom it was previously not well known. The Bideford area is promoted as being of particular interest to American visitors. The Guide's publishers, Ebenezer Ward and George Lock starting a publishing concern in 1854 that became known as "Ward and Lock". Based originally in Fleet Street, it outgrew its offices and in 1878 moved completely to Salisbury Square. London publisher Samuel Orchart Beeton was obliged (as a result of the financial Panic of 1866) to sell his titles and name to Ward Lock; this gave them the rights to his late wife's Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management. The Red Guides (of which this book is a typical example) for which Ward Lock became renowned, were initially acquired in the early 1880s, when the company bought Shaw's respected list of tourist guides.
