Notes

Second edition, scarce with the jacket, of this popular book on the major coaching roads of England. "To Thomson fell the providing of the subject and action pictures, while Railton vignetted old buildings, etc., along the great coaching roads of which the author gossiped... There is no doubt that Coaching Days remains to this day one of the most popular of Hugh's books" (Spielmann & Jerrold, Hugh Thomson: His Art, His Letters, His Humour and His Charm, 1931, pp. 45-6). Originally published in 1888.
