Bradshaw’s Handbook or to give it its full title “Bradshaw’s Descriptive Railway Handbook of Great Britain & Ireland” - the book that inspired the TV series Great British Railway Journeys, reproduced in a special collector’s leather-bound edition.

Produced as the British railway network was reaching its zenith and tourism by rail became a serious pastime, Bradshaw’s Handbook was a landmark in the history of the tour guide as well as a snapshot of Britain in the mid-Victorian period. Originally published in four parts, describing the sights to be seen in towns and cities along selected railway journeys in each region, the guide was gathered into a single book for the 1863 edition. It was the first national tourist guide specifically organized around railway journeys, and to us today it offers a fascinating glimpse through the carriage window at 1860s’ Britain.

The book has been reproduced by the Old House Books in two editions: the standard edition and a special collector’s edition (this title), leather-bound and printed on higher quality paper with much sharper reproduction of the original print.

The perfect gift for anyone feeling a bit nostalgic.
