This is one of the first directories of Waterford city. It includes a lot of local information, including an almanac or calendar of important local events for the year as well as fairs and markets for Waterford and its neighbouring counties of Kilkenny, Wexford and Tipperary. All government officials, including municipal office holders, members of parliament, the judiciary and courts are listed. Of greater importance is the inclusion of a full trades and professional directory, and a detailed alphabetical directory of residents. The title also contains an excellent map of the city.
