Botley, Old House books & maps, 2012 [facsimile edition]/ 1913.

Thick octavo, cxlvii, 1106 pages plus 2 colour folding maps and a large colour folding map in a front pocket.

Colour-pictorial papered boards; a fine copy with the printed clear plastic dustwrapper slightly rubbed, and retaining the original price label.

'A faithful facsimile of the 1913 edition, as used in the BBC TV series' (dustwrapper), referencing Michael Portillo's BBC series "Great Continental Railway Journeys". '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 siecle Europe and of a transport network that was shortly to be devastated by the greatest war the world had ever seen' (Trove).
