Bradshaw's Continental Railway Guide, once an indispensible tool for anyone planning to explore the Continent and now used in the BBC TV series, provides a fascinating glimpse of Europe soon to be convulsed by the First World War and emerge with many of its international borders changed by the conflict
This faithful facsimile of the 1913 edition is divided into three main sections: rail service timetables, short guides to Continental cities extending east to the Holy Land and Egypt, plus nearly 400 pages of advertisements for hotels. Numerous sub-sections provide plenty of other interesting information including an ABC of routes with best direct trains, steamer services, an index of towns with their stations, passport and postal regulations, recommended itinerates, a phrase book, etc. Incorporated into the guide are fold-out railway maps of Germany and Switzerland, plus a separate pull-out map of Europe.
If this 7.5 cm / 3 inch thick facsimile is a bit too big or heavy for most present day luggage, any armchair traveller will constantly be amazed by the wealth of information packed into it, and perhaps sometimes caught out too – steamer services to Austria and Hungary??? (Trieste, of course).
