International Commercial Directories

No country has everything they need or would like, and there are records of Trade existing back to the 19th century BC.  As methods of transportation evolved... camels, horses, ships, railroads, etc... merchants went farther afield to buy and sell their wares.

Now a Department of Commerce or a Department of Trade would publish directories like this one published in USA for Southern Australia. 

There were also guides for commercial travelers with information on where to go, how to get there, what to bring, what banks there are, recommended hotels etc.
