This book was much bigger and more detailed than the directories. Gold edges to the pages.

Yes Helen, it is a really good book. I have used it to answer several questions on the forum. Published about 1912. 200 pages full of information and pictures both inside and out of the many businesses of the time and the odd extra pictures as well. And I only paid £3.99 for it from a charity book shop. If one ever comes up on t'internet I would recommend anyone to buy it.

Interesting that there might be different versions Anne. Mine has no date of printing but it has a comment under one of the businesses about the upcoming business year of 1896.

My apologies Helen, I don't know where I got that date from so I have gone through the book and at the end of the article for W B Turner and son the author says "and we may in conclusion, strongly advise riders to inspect these admirable mounts before finally deciding on a selection for the fast approaching season of 1896" . So that must be the date of mine as well. It seems strange to call a book up to date and then not saying what date !

The "Coventry Up-To-Date" I have is only a "reprint" version, sadly (I must change the bibliography description!). It's really not much more than a pamphlet, containing 25 pages. I'll keep my eyes peeled for a copy on eBay or elsewhere though.

No need to apologise Anne, dating stuff is very difficult. You probably got the date from whoever sold it to you. We've all done that. I'll try to remember to bring my copy with me next time I come. The Herbert seems to have a copy here.
