The Bangor Directory. Bangor, Me.: James Burton, Jr., 1834.
A “City Advertiser” is bound in the front of this Bangor city directory. It includes an advertisement for E. Freeman Duren’s new bookstore, complete with a continuously updated circulating library. The importance of Bangor as a hub for rural Mainers is indicated by Duren’s advertisement which notes particularly: “orders from the country, sent by Stage Drivers or others, promptly attended to.”
