A late 1940s edition of Crockford's Directory, subtitled "with which is incorporated The Clergy List, Clerical guide & Ecclesiastical Directory. Being a Statistical Book of Reference for Facts Relating to the Clergy and the Church;; with Supplement and a Full Index of Facts Relating to the Parishes and Benefices of England and Wales and Ireland, and to the Charges, Missions, &c, of Scotland, the Dominions, Colonies, and India, and of Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America." in addition to all the information, a previous owner has left several newspaper clippings loosely tucked in, as well as a few small notices adhered in to relevant pages, and the odd bit of ephemera as a bookmark.
A good copy for age. There is some rubbing and bumping to the cloth and wear to the front joint at the head of the spine, and a small hole towards the base of the spine. The pages are clean, the binding is a little strained in places but secure.
