The Visitor's Guide and Directory to Llandrindod Wells and District, with a Plan of the Town and Map of the District. Matthews Brothers. Liverpool. No date [?1885].

pp. 48. Many illustrated advertisements, 2 maps and woodcuts in text; 112. Numerous text woodcuts, large double-sided folding map and plan, printed in blue. Original wraps, though lacking the front wrapper, tatty, staples rusted, map grubby where section has been exposed and with a couple of marginal tears into the image though without loss, contents clean.

*First title not in COPAC, the second is recorded for the NLW only. The rear wrapper is titled 'Evans's Guide' despite being the wrapper to the 'Visitor's Guide' published by Matthews. The folding map is called for by this latter guide but has been bound at the front of the Evans's Guide. The remnant of the spine is lettered '....... and Directory Lanndrindod Llanwrtyd ........... ' implying that both these works were issued together albeit by different publishers.
