The Railway Magazine, Volumes I–IV.
A run of the first four volumes of this notable magazine for railway enthusiasts, which is still published today, covering the periods from July to December 1897 to January to June 1899. The early volumes are inevitably uncommon, particularly so well-preserved in the cloth. With a loosely inserted timetable for services between Manchester and Stockport “via Manchester South District Line, May 1st to June 30th, 1900”, torn but with only minor losses.
