Bradshaw's International Air Guide, the very first edition published in November 1934, in a facsimile reproduction from the Old House Books, with a pull-out map showing air routes in Britain, Europe and worldwide.

Following the example set by its extremely popular and now so successfully revived on TV predecessor, Bradshaw’s Railway Guide, this air travel version provides detailed information on timetables, fares, and even excess baggage charges, e.g. London to Singapore in eight days with a rail connection from Paris to Brindisi and overnight stops in Cairo, Baghdad, Sharjah, Jodhpur, Calcutta and Bangkok – all for just £180 (plus excess luggage over 20 kilos at 0.25% of the single fare per kg) -a small fortune in those days!

The guide lists routes from European airports (no listings to or within the USA or Canada), and it’s interesting to see so many connections from German towns (over 70 from Berlin alone). This is underlined by the pull-out map supplied with the guide, showing on one side Europe with the southern Mediterranean coast, and on the reverse two panels with the British Isles and the World. The world map, apart from a route linking Berlin with South America, clearly shows how long-haul routes were connecting the main centres of the British Empire.

Numerous advertisements add to this fascinating insight into what is now seen as the golden age of air travel.
