Porter's Guide to the Manufacturers and Shippers of Ireland
Belfast: Davidson & McCormack n.d. ( 1909 ). - Containing the names and addresses of persons interested in the make or sale of Irish Manufactures or Products throughout the four Provinces of Ireland, and a comprehensive and up-to-date list of the leading importers of Irish Produce in England, Scotland and Wales. 22 by 14.5 cms. 795 pp. dark green boards. The boards show a bit of wear and fading, spine title largely faded away, internally bright, clean, unannotated. Copac only identifies one copy of this title, in the B.L. and dates it to 1909, although there is another copy in the NLI Dublin. In 1911 a Frank Porter issued "Porter's Post Office Guide and Directory of Kingstown, Blackrock, Dalkey, Killiney and Neighbourhood. " No further issues of either title seem to be known. Mr Porter was from Rathmullen Co. Donegal and in his preface notes that the printing of this Guide began in Letterkenny but production delays meant it was transferred to the Belfast Printers. He notes, "that upward of 4000 orders have been obtained." Arranged in Provincial order it is an exhaustive directory of merchants, manufacturers, shippers, shopkeepers etc throughout the country before the first World War and the traumas of the 1920's. Excellent advertisments. Scarce. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
