An enlarged facsimile edition of Bradshaw's descriptive railway handbook of Europe originally published in 1853. Bradshaw's original tourist guide to rail travel is the star of the BBC's television series 'Great Continental Railway Journeys' as used by Michael Portillo. Produced in 1853 at a time that the railways became essential for tourism as well as infrastructure. This new larger format facsimile edition gives you the chance to explore what is now common, through the eyes of a continent for whom rail travel was still a novelty of the age. Providing a fascinating view of European railway travel in the nineteenth century. This Bradshaw's Continental Handbook has been recreated from the Bradshaw's Continental Railway Guide and General Handbook Illustrated with Local and other Maps 'special edition' from 1853 and also Bradshaw's General Shareholders Manual and Directory 1853. Maps which appear as pull outs throughout the original text have been moved to a section after the main book. In order to make the original documents easier to interpret this edition has been published at a slightly enlarged scale.

Great Continental Railway Journeysis now a firmly established series on BBC2, following in the illustrious tracks of its predecessor - Great British Railway Journeys. Both series are fronted by ex-politician Michael Portillo and in this European odyssey he travels around continental Europe, using George Bradshaw's1913 Continental Railway Guide. Now coming up for its fourth instalment this autumn, Portillo guides the train-travelling fan across Europe arriving at a myriad of magical and historically fascinating cities we all dream of travelling to by train. From London, to Paris, Bordeaux, Lyon, Copenhagen, Oslo, Lisbon, Madrid, Berlin, Monte Carlo, Prague, Munich, Zurich, Rome, Budapest, St Petersburg; all the way down to Constantinople, Haifa and Jerusalem - Portillo describes the great feats of engineering that built the various railway lines connecting Europe and further afield and the men and women who made these journeys famous through their deeds and words. The new series (6x1-hour) will transmit in early November 2015, and this book will be the official, lavishly illustrated tie-in covering every single journey Portillo has undertaken across Europe. Capturing all the colour, beauty, excitement and fervour of journeying across this historic continent can muster. A must-have purchase for any armchair fan of unique and award-winning travel programming.
