“I want to let you know that the William Blew "History of Steeple-chasing" arrived safely in today's post. It is truly everything that I expected and more. The book arrived in good sound condition and all the color plates, which you said, were also in fine condition. I can't thank you enough for the highly professional service you gave to me. I hope that we may work together again in the future. Again, my thanks and very best wishes.”

“ The book arrived promptly and was beautifully wrapped in tissue paper. The outer cardboard packaging was stout and prevented any damage in transit. I am very pleased with my purchase which is to be a present for my Aunt. She will be absolutely delighted with the book and I have no hesitation in recommending this seller. A very positive experience.”

About this title: In the United Kingdom, the Kelly`s Directory (almost always known as Kelly`s) was in effect a Victorian version of today`s Yellow Pages. The origins of Kelly`s Directory can be traced to 1799 when Frederic Festus Kelly – His Majesty’s Inspector of Inland Letter Carriers – created the Post Office London Directory. In 1802, Kelly & Co Ltd was launched and later in the 19th century Frederic Kelly gradually built upon his original publication, producing directories for an increasing number of UK counties. The directories contain a list of all: businesses tradespeople local gentry landowners charities and other facilities located in a particular village or town etc. Many reference libraries still keep their copies of these directories, which are now an important source for historical research.
