This second edition of Ottley's monumental reference work provides a list of over 8,000 books, parts of books, pamphlets and academic theses on the history and description of public rail transport in the British Isles and is a reprint of the original 1966 edition (with minor typographical errors corrected). An asterisk beside an entry indicates that the Supplement (published in 1984 and covering an additional 5,000 items) includes descriptions of later editions of the item. The two volumes (and the further Second Supplement) constitute a classified documentation, fully indexed, of rail transport development in the British Isles from the mineral wagonways of the 17th and 18th centuries through the Railway Age of Victorian and Edwardian Britain and Ireland down to the modern urban tramways and the Rail 150 Celebration of 1980. This volume also contains magnificent detailed foldout charts showing the corporate family history of Britain's major railways. 683 pages.
