Bradshaw's Illustrated Hand Book to Belgium and the Rhine

£75.00

Product description

Bradshaw's Illustrated Hand Book to Belgium and the Rhine

Published by Bradshaw, 1876 (several references to this date through the book, including preface.) pp 188 plus magnificent 91 page advertising gazette to rear.

Flimsy red cloth covers, very well used, dirty but very good - no fraying etc, remarkably good corners and spine. Engraved decoration to corners and borders; gilt titles to front and spine, including price: 5/-.

Block edges dirty and unevenly bound. All pages tanned, inner hinges cracked. Some neat pencil marks through the book showing places the owner visited etc. Spine covering is floppy and there is cracking in the block sections, but still the book hangs on in grand defiance.

Superb engravings of notable places (p67, 69, 81, 157, 165 etc.) These fine examples each include five or six smaller images bordered in floral swirls - really beautiful - on post cards. A tiny image on p157 includes a man in silent repose, and on p165 a man with his dog. These insets are hard to spot but they appear everywhere.
Many fold-out town plans, a fine metre-long map of the Meuse and a large loose map of Europe in the back cover.
Previous owner has drawn a sketch on p111 (facing), that shows a 433 foot high cliff and a 76 foot deep river.

The book comprises three dozen touring routes for the well-to-do Victorian traveller, taking in the principal sights and staying in the finest hotels. The gazette is captivating.

Oxfam Bookshop Market Harborough

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller. Oxfam bookshops offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, classics, and rare or collectable books. We also stock an attractive range of greetings cards and a good selection of stationery. Come and browse!

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
