…every aspect of Georgian Liverpool is presented from the contemporary point of view, in the authentic voice, with modern commentary. Purchase of the book, at its very reasonable price, cannot be too highly recommended.
Steve Collins, Transactions of the Lancashire and Cheshire Antiquarian Society, Vol 104, 2009
Georgian Liverpool was a vibrant maritime city which attracted visitors from across the globe, both for business and for recreation. There was much to enjoy and admire, but such a large and populous centre could be a bewildering place. So, in 1797, Dr William Moss wrote a detailed guide book to the city to allow them fully to understand and appreciate the sights of the town. The second edition of this wonderful guide is reproduced here and provides a truly fascinating window on Liverpool’s past, just as the city is once again becoming a magnet for national and international visitors of all kinds.
With the addition of contemporary illustrations and helpful background information, historian David Brazendale has ensured that today’s readers have an excellent insight into eighteenth-century Liverpool, and therefore gain a better understanding of the city in the twenty-first century.
