Subtitle: "Historical Sketch showing the evolution of the London Midland and Scottish Railway, with track mileage of upwards of 20,000 miles, from the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, with a track mileage of 31 1/2 miles"
Landscape format softcover. The boards are maroon card, now somewhat faded, with silhouette drawings, in black, of locomotives through the century. The outer corners are slightly curled. There are no inscriptions or marking. There is some foxing throughout. The binding is in remarkable condition.
Authoritative text by H. G. Burgess, General Manager dated 1925, supported by drawings, photographs and tables. There is a large double page fold-out between pages 18 and 19, still in excellent condition.
Also with this book is a glossy colour photographic reproduction of a drawing of the Royal Scott.
A rare opportunity to obtain this rather scarce book in such good condition.
