JORDAN'S GUIDE TO BRITISH STEAM LOCOMOTIVES
Written by Owen Jordan.
Stock no. 1809715
Published by The King's England Press. 1st 2003. Nearly fine condition.

From the railway's origins as a crude horse-and-gravity means of getting coal tubs from the pit head to the canal basin, through the eventual mastery of technical problems by "derring-do", industrial espionage and experiments, the coming of commercial interest, and the almost inevitable resulting clash between what was best for the railways, and what was most profitable for the shareholders, the author then charts the drastic impact of the two world wars, the struggle to innovate through the balmy but becalmed days of the 1930s, and the inevitability of the advent of British Railways and with it the end of the steam age... Cardwraps. B/w line-drawings. ISBN: 1872438709. Corners lightly rubbed, contents fine.

THE PRACTICAL BUILDER'S PERPETUAL PRICE-BOOK
Written by Richard Elsam.
Stock no. 1712337
Published by Thomas Kelly. 1825. Fair condition.

10.5 x 8.5 inches. Brown leather spine and corners. 6 b/w plates. No author mentioned but believed to be Richard Elsam. The Practical Builder's Perpetual Price-Book; Elucidating the Principles of Correctly Ascertaining the Average Value of the Different Artificer's Works Usually Employed in Buildings; With the Customs of Measuring and Valueing in the Various Parts of the United Kingdom. Book: Inscription in ink to front endpaper which is also part detached from binding. Endpapers foxed. Front board detached. Boards worn with loss of colour. Base of spine chipped with loss. Corners bumped and worn. The plate descriptions on page 160 are slightly confusing and it could be argued that there should be 8 plates in this volume, but only 6 are bound in and none appear to have been removed. Opposite the frontis appears to be the half-title page with no title page present, we believe this is the way this copy was bound.
