Index prepared by Michael Steer

The authors: Edward and George Henry Croydon were printers, booksellers, publishers, stationers, circulating library owners, engravers, with a print and music warehouse, with offices in in Regent Place, Teignmouth. They traded as Edward Croydon and Son, were both born in Teignmouth and probably best known for publishing a popular series of Guides to watering places on the coast between the Exe and the Dart. Teignmouth is a town and civil parish in Teignbridge, Devon, situated on the north bank of the estuary mouth of the River Teign. In 1690, it was the last place in England to be invaded by a foreign power. The town grew from a fishing port associated with the Newfoundland cod industry to a fashionable resort of some note in Georgian times, with further expansion after the opening of the South Devon Railway in 1846. Today, its port still operates and the town remains a popular seaside holiday location.
