PREFACE.



In this attempt to present to the Public a History and Topography of the Borough of
Binningham, with a complete Directory of the Inhabitants, under two arrangements —
first, giving the Sm-names in Alphabetical order, with the Trades and Professions at
fiill length, places of Business, and Residences ; second, classified under the Heads of
Trades and Professions — the Authors acknowledge their great obligation to the Literary
and Official Gentlemen of the Borough, who have so freely furnished them with various
sources of information; and also to the numerous Subscribers who have favoured them
with their support to so liberal an extent; and hope the present Volume will be foomd
the most complete Book of Reference ever published for this populous Borough.

The Plan of the Work embraces a General History and Description of the Town
and Borough of Birmingham, extracted from the works of ancient and modem Authors ;
and fi-om the Parliamentary Reports of Public Charities, Population, &c. ; together
with a variety of Statistical, Commercial, and Biograpliical information, elicited by
personal inquiry ; with a full and comprehensive view of the rise and progress of those
beautiful Manufactures of which Birmingham is the emporium, to which it and the
immediate locality owe much of their present wealth and importance. Lists of Magis-
trates, Public Officers, Streets, Courts, Places, Squares, Terraces, &c., with an Alpha-
betical arrangement of the addresses of the Inhabitants, followed by a Directory classed
according to Trades and Professions ; the whole preceded by a Table shevring the re-
ciprocal distances of all the Towns from each other, and from London ; and a general
Index, which points out the page at which every subject may be instantly found.

The present Volume being part of a General History, Gazetteer, and Directory of
the County of Warwick, which will appear complete in about five months, and will be
accompanied with a large coloured sheet Map of the County, prepared expressly for th«
Work.
