This small (5.4 x 2.5 inches) leatherbound pocket guide with local advertisements and accompanying folding map (attached to the inside front cover) appeared in 1898. Oddly, the title on the cover is 'East Jaffrey N.H.' although this is not the actual title and the contents relate to the entire town. It would appear that it was aimed primarily at the tourist of the time. The author is not given but as it was published by George H. Duncan ("Duncan the Druggist") it may have been written by him or at least commissioned by him.
