This is a rare, paperback, illustrated guidebook for the Bombay, Baroda & Central India Railway, route of the Royal Mail to Delhi, Lahore, Rawalpindi, Peshawar, and Rajputana, providing a fascinating look at both India and Imperial attitudes in that era. Designed to highlight the beauty and ease of travel for the British visitor, the book provides step-by-step guidance from the moment of disembarkation in Delhi. There are 4 tours described with every aspect -- accommodations, finding food at train stations, travelling with servants, etc -- covered. It is illustrated throughout with black and white photos and a map.
The volume is undated but may have been published between 1926 and 1942 when the railway was renamed. It is in a good condition, given its age and its paper covers which are a little spotted. The staples are rusty and the page block is yellowing.
