Catalogue of the Records of Harveys of Bristol Wine Merchants

£20.00

Product description

William Smith, Archivist, Bristol Record Office.
Bristol Record Office, 2004.
Paperback; 190 x 245 mm; 158 pages; 13 illustrations plus illustrations on the front and back covers.
The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound. The first half-title page has a small adhesive label, top right corner, with the name and address of a previous owner and a mark in black ink. A larger, typed label below the title states:
“Sorted, archived, entered onto CALM database and this book written by William Smith, Archivist, Bristol Record Office – 2004. This copy given to me by John Williams, Deputy Head Museums Galleries and Archives (City Archivist) on my retirement on 19 January 2007.”
The pages are clean with no discoloration to the edges. There is very slight bumping affecting the edges of the first few pages of the book.
The wine merchants, subsequently known as Harveys of Bristol, were established in 1796 in Bristol. Widely known for their high quality sherry, they are also renowned as a shipper of fine wines. The book sets out the catalogue references and brief descriptions of what the documents and records contain covering: corporate records, financial records, management records, illustrative material, and allied material. Also included is a select bibliography.
The essential value of this book lies in its use as a research tool. It is likely to be an invaluable resource for anyone undertaking research into this particular company, or the wine trade in general, as a guide to where particular records can be found in the Bristol archives.
