VARIOUS AUTHORS
THE RAILWAY SYSTEM OF GREAT BRITAIN 1832-1901. A unique collection of 69 early articles on Railway Accidents, Railway Management, Railway Companies, Railway Legislation. All published between 1832 - 1901. Includes interesting pieces on the Midlothian Railway (1833), the Principles of Railway Management (1846), the London and Northwest Railway (1848), Fatal Accidents (1851), Financial Prospects (1859), Bradshaw Guides (1866), Railway Rates and Fares (1875), Administration (1885), Railway Mismanagement (1892). In total, around 1600 pages. A full list of the articles in the collection is available on request.
Various, London. First Edition, Disbound. Very Good Condition. This extensive collection is especially interesting in that it contains material that looks at railways from a different perspective than the usual engineering or locomotive aspects. Instead, it examines the position of the railway companies in handling issues such as fatal accidents, injuries, even suicides on the railway. It seeks to discuss fares and worker's wages, the value of railway shares, the taxation of railways, the costs of railway development and the risks represented by the rapid growth in the "Railway Mania" period, together with the role of government legislation and the difficulties parliament had in keeping up with the progress of the railway safety, utility of services and finances. Whilst there have been ample and often simply derivative studies of the early years of the railways in Britain, much less has been written about the challenges that railway growth brought to the management of the companies, along with the important role that they played in the industrial, commercial, and social development of the country. The type of material in this collection has often been overlooked in the standard and popular studies of railway history, and will provide ample opportunity for new and interesting insights. A collection such as this would be close to impossible to reassemble, especially in these original formats, and is a very useful collection of primary source material that will allow and encourage further research into this key period of the development of railways in Britain, particularly as it takes such an unusual overview of this key early period. Note; this is a collection of 69 articles all separated and disbound from other volumes, not offprints or reprints, amounting to around 1600 pages. Overall condition is very good, with bright clean, easily readable pages. There is some browning here and there to a few pages, but not many. Each article is contained in a clear protective sleeve for safe handling. Size: Octavo (standard book size). Quantity Available: 1. Category: Antiquarian & Rare; Collections.
