Bourne's London and Birmingham Railway

£70.00

Product description

First published in 1839, this is the 1970 reproduction by David & Charles of John C. Bourne's famous series of lithographs of the building of the London and Birmingham Railway, which opened in 1838. Its thirty-seven plates illustrate, in extraordinary detail, how an early railway in all its aspects really looked. How the line was planned and built is told in John Britton's 'historical and descriptive account' in the opening 23 pages of the book. Bourne's detailed map of the country between London and Birmingham has also been included.
Large format hardback, 39cms x 54cms. Some bumping damage to top of spine, bindings tight and pages clean and unmarked, with exception of final plate of Birmingham Station, where page has been badly produced at edge, plate is unaffected. Printed dust jacket is shabby and has many small tears around edges. Overall categorised as poor condition due to damage and price reduced accordingly.
