Book Description

Railway Chronicle travelling charts : or, iron road books, for perusal on the journey : in which are noted the towns, villages, churches, mansions, parks, stations, bridges, viaducts, tunnels, cuttings, gradients, &c., the scenery and its natural history, the antiquities and their historical associations, &c. passed by the line of railway : London to Basingstoke, Winchester and Gosport, on the South-Western. Strip map 21.6 x 268 cms, concertina folded. Decorated pink printed wrappers. Coverage is from Nine Elms to Gosport with explanatory text and illustrations. Distances are marked against the diagrammatic representation of the track in a style reminiscent of 18th century road maps. The wrappers are a little dusty and there is a small amount of loss to an illustration on the final fold of the map due to adhesion (the lost portion visible on the inner surface of the wrapper.) Protected in a stiff plain wallet with a paper label.
