This helpful guide for visitors appeared in 1862 to accompany London's International Exhibition of that year. Held in South Kensington from May to November, the Exhibition showcased the progress made in a diverse range of crafts, trades and industries since the Great Exhibition of 1851. Over 6 million visitors came to view the wares of more than 28,000 exhibitors from Britain, her empire and beyond. Intended as a guided tour, the present work points out the most interesting exhibits along the way, touching on mining, pharmaceuticals, machinery, musical instruments, textiles, ceramics, furniture, clothing and jewellery, among much else. Containing a ground plan of the exhibition space as well as many contemporary advertisements, this publication remains an instructive resource for social and economic historians. Also relating to the 1862 Exhibition, both the official and illustrated catalogues of the industrial department are reissued in this series.
