Produced as the British railway network was reaching its zenith and as tourism by rail became a serious pastime for the better off, the Bradshaw's Tourist Handbook was the first national tourist guide specifically organized around railway journeys and to this day offers a glimpse through the carriage window at a Britain long past. This is an exact copy of the actual book - often referred to as 'Bradshaw's Guide' - that inspired the 'Great British Railway Journeys' television series, possibly the only surviving example of the 1863 edition. A collector's item, landmark in the history of the tour guide and snapshot of Britain in the 1860s; Bradshaw's Handbook deserves a place on the bookshelf of any traveller, railway enthusiast, historian or anglophile.

The Bradshaw's Tourist Handbook measures 13.7cm x 4.2cm x 17.9cm and comes with a removable paper belly-band.
