Although the copy used for scanning is more or less disbound it is complete, though some of the pages are a litte warped and/or skew printed and suffer from ink bleed.
The directory contains a street plan of Manchester with street index (though a small section at the top left hand corner is missing) and a Map of the Manufacturing District around Manchester. The maps have each been scanned as two overlapping tiles, the warping of the paper making it impractical to try to stitch the scans together.
In addition to the maps, the directory contains: Advertisements; Post Office details; Appendix of alterations; Alphabetical Directory of Manchester & Salford; Classified Commercial Directory of Manchester & Salford; Lists of Country Manufacturers, Carriers, Coaches, Churches/Chapels & Institutional Officers; Neighbourhood directories as detailed below; Alphabetical Directory for 24 miles around Manchester plus Preston & Runcorn; Lists of London & Provincial Bankers; 1821 Population Statistics for Lancashire, Cheshire & The High Peak Hundred of Derbyshire; Fairs in Lancashire & the Cheshire towns in the directory; Distances between Lancashire & Cheshire market towns.
There are two gaps in page numbering, pp 169 to 188 and pp 292 to 296 inclusive, which occurred in the original directory. There are no missing pages.
In general, the entry for each of the places listed below includes Post Office details; Alphabetical Trades & Professions Directory and (for the larger towns) Carrier details & Coach details.
