The directory contains two maps of Dorset: a copy of one originally drawn up in 1610 and one drawn for the directory. Both maps are slightly too large to scan in a single piece on an A3 scanner (whilst the whole of the county can be scanned in one, some of the legends at the edges of the map are cut off). In addition to scanning as much as possible of each map as a whole, therefore, they have also been scanned as overlapping left and right tiles which have subsequently been stitched together. All three scans plus the stitched version of each map have been included in the download. Other than the maps the directory contains: Advertisements; Indexes; Towns and Villages Directory; Private Residents Directory; Trades & Professional Directory. Some of the scanned pages appear not to be straight. This is a feature of the original book rather than the scanning process.
