How are Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde and the Regent Bridge connected? adds Scottish Trade Directories dating back 185 years.

Having released over 40 volumes of Scottish Trade Directories in 2009, we are pleased to release an additional 60 volumes of Directories dating back from 1825 to the early part of the 19th Century during the growing influence of the Industrial Revolution and the British Empire.

One of the directories available is Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, and the hub of Scottish Enlightenment in the 18th century. It transformed Scotland into one of the commercial, intellectual and industrial powerhouses of Europe which continued well into the 19th Century.

In these early directories key figures in the Scottish Enlightenment included Sir Walter Scott, Sir James Hall and other notables such as Robert Stevenson (1772-1850) a Scottish civil engineer and famed designer and builder of lighthouses.
