From the cover: “By popular request, after a gap of many years, we are reprinting another Bradshaw, that of the last summer before Britain’s numerous railway companies were swept into the ‘big four’ on 1 January 1923. It shows the details of numerous competing main lines as well as cross-country and branch ones long swept into oblivion. Every page has its curiosities; every page tells its own piece of railway, economic and social history for those who enjoy reading timetables. This one is easy to read: it is presented as a fully-bound, quality book, with enlarged type on crisp white paper. Buy it while you can since even our earlier reprints have become scarce collector’s items.”

Foreword or introduction by David St John Thomas. Size: 8¾" x 5¾". Green boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. [LXI] 1166 pages.
