Archive: Blue Guides since 1918

The first Blue Guide, London and its Environs, was published by the Muirhead brothers in 1918. We aim to keep in our library a copy of every Blue Guide ever published (though we fear books have been pinched, lost, mislaid or forgotten over the years). See our current list below, and please do not hesitate to contact us if you see any omissions:
