BOLTON, James [publisher]. Bolton's Visitors' Guide to Clifton, Bristol, Hotwells, and Neighbourhood; with Maps and Illustrations. To which is added the Handbook to the Bristol & Clifton Hotwells. Bristol, James Bolton, [1857].

Two volumes in one (as issued), small 8vo. Original publisher's cloth, large printed title labels to both front and rear cover; pp. vi, [7]-79, woodengraved frontispiece, two double-page lithographic maps, wood-engravings in the text; [the second work:] pp. 60, [36, illustrated advertisements], wood-engraved frontispiece, large folding geological section of Clifton Rocks with hand-colouring, one wood-engraved plate; binding only a little marked, the second work on evenly toned paper stock, the folding section with small repair to marginal tear along at fold; a very good copy.
First edition of the first work, incorporating the first edition of the second work, which was published separately in 1853 by Chilcott in Bristol. When Bolton planned his more sight-seeing oriented guide-book he must have bought the remainders of Chilcott's balneological guide and incorporated it into his new publication. Clifton is the posh and picturesque end of Bristol, were soon the world-famous suspension bride was to be built.
COPAC locates a single copy, at University of Leicester; the second work on its own is located at Cambridge only; not in the British Library.
