About This Item

Title: Bradshaw's Continental Railway Guide 1913 And General Handbook

Publisher: Old House

Format: Hardback

Size: 18cm x 13cm, 1106 pages

This rare special edition of Bradshaw's Continental Railway Guide shows a Europe soon to be devastated by the First World War. Its three sections comprise contemporary rail service timetables, short guides to the great cities of the Continent - Paris, Venice, Vienna, Berlin and innumerable others as far east as Jerusalem - at the height of the fin de siècle glamour, and a wealth of advertisements designed to entice the Edwardian tourist. It was an earlier version of this very book that guided Phileas Fogg, and this 1913 edition will be an invaluable resource for the modern traveller who wishes to explore Europe as it was at the turn of the century - the great age of the Orient Express.
