Tomlinson’s North Eastern Railway hardback book (second hand)
‘The North Eastern Railway; its rise and development’ was first published in 1915, having been written between 1900 and 1914 with the backing of the NER. This edition dates to 1967 and was introduced by renowned railway historian Ken Hoole. It gives a detailed account of the history of the NER to 1880, and of its predecessor companies; the history from 1880 to 1904 is more briefly covered, partly due to ill health of the author; the key events in period 1904 to 1915 were covered in an appendix.
Hardback, a stonking 820 pages long, illustrated and indexed. The condition is good with a little tearing to the spine (see gallery).
