A DIRECTORY OF GREENE COUNTY FOR 1855-6, EMBRACING THE NAMES OF VOTERS IN THE COUNTY GENERALLY, ALPHABETICALLY ARRANGED, THEIR OCCUPATION, RESIDENCE AND POST OFFICE...
Mobile: Printed by Strickland & Co., 1856. [2],74pp., including errata, plus [24]pp. of ads at the end. Original brown cloth, large printed paper label on front board. Cloth and label somewhat rubbed and soiled, boards lightly shelfworn. Some foxing and tanning, as usual. Very good, in original condition. Scarce and early directory for this west-central Alabama county. Aside from the lengthy directory of residents, there is information on birthplaces of Greene County residents and religious denominations, as well as several pages of advertisements giving information on commercial houses in Mobile and other parts of the state. Howes mentions a map, and notes that it was "not issued in all copies." As Owen notes, the map was issued separately, and is not to be found with the book. It is not mentioned by Spear, and Owen describes it separately in his section on Alabama maps. "The whole work abounds in detail, and possesses an interest that does not usually attach to such an effort" - Owen. Antebellum southern directories are notoriously scarce. SPEAR, p.138. OWEN ALABAMA, p.1167. HOWES S736, "aa." SABIN 85375a.
