The Archive CD Books website offers rare and invaluable British research tools reproduced on CD – books that most of us would otherwise not have access to outside of county libraries and archives. Not only that, the CD’s are affordable – about $30 each. They have wide range of titles, including Pigot’s directories for all counties in England, Post Office directories and unique books such as a contemporary tourist guide entitled, “Excursions through Essex 1818.” They also offer the London 1833 Royal Blue Book, the listing for which reads: One of the most interesting directories, and a really beautiful and valuable book. The Royal Blue Book is in two parts: a complete street by street listing (with house numbers) for central London in 1833, together with a complete alphabetical listing of all heads of household, their occupation where applicable, and address. It also includes Institutions, Societies, Public Offices, Hotels, Coffee-Houses and Taverns, Army and Navy Agents, and Bankers, followed by a section containing advertisements. An 1831 street map of London has also been included on the CD. (The original book never did have a map, but this one is taken from the 1831 Lewis’ Topographical Dictionary of England).
