History of Plymouth from the earliest period to the present time (Commercial Adverts.)

Plymouth: W Brendon & Sons (1871) vi, 343 pp.


Richard Nicholls Worth

Prepared by Michael Steer

One of the pleasures for the genealogist or social historian of reading antique books in their original, are the sometimes colourful advertisements inserted at the front and rear (in this instance only the rear) of the book. These are ads that the genealogist cannot afford to ignore, and they are often so fascinating and quaint that you might find it difficult to go on to reading the actual text of the book. For it is here that the world of 19th century consumer products opens up, the ads cascading out of a cornucopia of Victorian or Edwardian need. This rare and much sought-after book was produced digitally by Google from a copy in the Harvard University 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..
