George Bradshaw avec Bradshaw's Continental Railway Guide Full Edition
Following its bestselling edition of Bradshaw's Handbook 1863, Old House brings you this fascinating guide to Europe's rail network on the very brink of the First World War. Published in 1913, it is divided into three sections: timetables for services covering the continent, short guides to each city and notable destination and features, and a wealth of advertisements and ephemeral materials concerning hotels, restaurants and services that might be required by the early twentieth century traveller by rail. It affords a fascinating glimpse of fin de siècle Europe and of a transport network that was shortly to be devastated by the greatest war the world had ever seen.
'This book is a rare treasure ... reprinted not just thoroughly but lovingly, with maps placed in special plastic pockets and even the original bookmark ... I cannot think of a better present.' --Engineering & Technology Magazine
