Perhaps the best introduction to this unusual work is that within the Preface - "No apology is needed for the publication of a Dictionary of Bristol. Nothing of the kind has been attempted before, and the editors trust it will prove acceptable to the general public. It isnot to be assumed that the information contained in the Dictionary is entirely original, but at least an immense amount of labour has been gone through to obtain that which will be found herein. All the histories of Bristol, from Barrett and Seyer down to Nicholls and Taylor (Bristol: Past and Present), have been gone through, and for modern municipal affairs the city and contemporary records have been consulted.". The dictionary comprises 292 pages detailing all sorts of facts about Bristol, a number of which contain lists of people involved. In addition there is a contemporary street map.
Some of the scanned pages appear not to be straight. This is a feature of the original book rather than the scanning process.
