BOURNE, John C.
The History and Description of the Great Western Railway
Historic J C Bourne drawings of the Great Western Railway published in 1846. The plates illustrate stations, infrastructure and scenes along the route of the railway. A facsimile was produced in 1969 on high quality art paper in elephant folio size.
The 1969 reprint volumes were published in an unlaminated paper dust wrapper with loose cellophane cover. As substantial and heavy volumes, the cellophane inevitably tore and was discarded with the wrappers being rubbed, soiled and damaged. We have acquired a special size of removable transparent protection to cover the dust wrappers and this will be applied to each volume sold.
