London Directories from the Guildhall Library, 1677-1799
- Published by Primary Source Microfilm
The bibliography London Directories 1677-1799, published in 1932 by Charles W. F. Goss, was the starting point for this widely used collection. Goss compiled and annotated the London Directories, highlighting names of interesting personalities and abstracting bits of history from between the lines. The information held by the directories documents the growth of the city of London over a span of three centuries, chronicling the city's evolution through the listing of streets, individuals, trades and other information.
A few of the major directories included in the collection are:
- A Collection of the Names of the Merchants Living in and about the City of London (1677), which includes the names of 1,953 merchants and traders and their residence or business addresses
- The Directory, or a List of Principal Traders in London (1732), which provides 1,260 names with occupations and addresses
- London Post Office Directory (1800)
- London Commercial Guide and Street Directory (1817), which provides in one volume all the information covered in earlier directories, presented in the most efficient format yet developed
Offering unique insights into life in and around London, this resource is an unsurpassed collection of primary source material for the study of history, sociology, anthropology, genealogy and demography.
