For those wishing to know: D. Cussons was a local printer and bookseller 
in the Lincolnshire town of Horncastle (England).  As far as I know this 
was his first and only attempt at a local odds and ends book.  Amongst the 
information are when the fairs are, how to cure pimples, exceptions from 
the window tax and an advertisement for foreign missions.  He didn't put 
much about Horncastle in it as people in the town knew what was there.

All the best,
Cold and damp England
