This is a short, yet very rare publication by the Sligo Chronicle newspaper. It contains a complete business directory for Sligo in 1878. It also contains a very detailed set of "Local memoranda" concerning the county, including a history of Sligo county and details about Sligo town, and the towns of Rosses Point, Ballymote, Collooney, Ballisodare, and Easky. This is followed by a comprehensive listing of all the people associated with the various administrative bodies in the county, including MPs, judiciary, Sligo corporation, Harbour Board, Sligo Union, Tobercurry Union, Dromore West Union, Sligo & Leitrim Asylum, County Infirmary, religious establishments, schools and the army.

However the real value of this publication is the range of unusual topics it covers. It has a section on "Profitable thoughts" containing many poems, a section on famous men and women from the county, and more. The book also includes an extraordinary calendar for the year ahead, which contains articles on a divers range of topics both local and international, with 15 illustrations. 

While only 84 pages, this is a useful book for those studying Sligo and its people.
