Housed in a green cloth clamshell case with red leather lettering label on spine.An eye-witness account of travel on the world's second practical railway line, with plates after Bury "an outstanding architectural designer" (Abbey) and a detailed report of the difficulties overcome during the railways construction."A later edition with the plates re-engraved [many of them with significant changes] was issued in 1833? Copies occur with 2 extra folding coloured aquatint plates by I. Shaw, engraved by S.G. Hughes viz. "A Train of First and Second Class Carriages with the Mail" and "Trains of Waggons with Goods, Cattle &c? This [edition] may have a further additional [folding] plate "Bridge on the line of St. Helen's and Runcorn Gap Railway." (Tooley). "This book was first published with six plates in 1831. It proved popular, and other editions followed?This classic record of the beginnings of the railway age was also one of the last significant books illustrated with aquatints. Lithography was already sweeping the field for pictorial records of this kind" (Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England).Thomas Bury, 'a pupil of Augustus Pugin, was an outstanding architectural designer, and engaged with Pugin, in designing the details of the Houses of Parliament. He was the artist responsible for the best-known views of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. He Published as hand-colored aquatints in paper covers by Ackermann in February 1831 [titled Six Coloured Views of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, with a plate of the coaches, machines, &c], Bury's work went through many editions covering a period of about three years. There were seven views in the first edition and thirteen in the second. A reissue appeared in 1832 followed by Spanish and French editions, while the prints were reproduced separately in France and Germany. After re-engraving, new editions appeared in England in 1833 and 1834. Ackermann clearly realized the potential of the British and European markets for railway prints as no other work passed through so many editions' (Rees). The present copy includes the first state of one of the two folding plates of carriages and engines: before canopies were added to the lower set of carriages. The view of the interior of the Wapping to Edge Hill tunnel is in a later state (possibly the fifth) dated 1833 and after the removal of the steaming train (the train was a mistake as no train under steam was allowed in the tunnel).The inspiration for the project to build the railway was the success of the Stockton to Darlington rail line and the urgent commercial need for faster links between the docks of Liv.

Book Description London Ackermann, 1833. (34,5 x 28,5 cm). (2) 8 S. Mit 16 (2 gefaltete und 1 doppelblattgroße) handkolorierte Aquatinta-Tafeln, davon 13 gestochen von S.G. Hughes bzw. H. Pyall nach Zeichnungen von T. T. Bury; die beiden gefalteten gestochen von S. G. Hughes nach Vorlagen von I. Shaw. Halblederband der Zeit mit rotem Leder-Titelschild auf dem Vorderdeckel. Eines der schönsten und frühesten Eisenbahnbücher, hier in der vollständigen Ausgabe mit den drei gefalteten Zusatztafeln. Die erste Ausgabe von 1831 mit dem Titel "Six coloured views." enthält lediglich 7 Kupfertafeln und ein Titelblatt, noch im gleichen Jahr erschien eine um 6 Tafeln und die 8 Seiten Text erweiterte Ausgabe. - Bereits 1825 fuhr die erste von Stephenson gebaute Dampflokomotive auf der Strecke von Stockton nach Darlington, allerdings nur für den Güterverkehr. Die erste, am 15. September 1830 eröffnete Strecke für Personenverkehr wird in vorliegendem Werk beschrieben. Sie verbindet die Städte Liverpool und Manchester und ist die weltweit erste Strecke, auf der ausschließlich von Dampflokomotiven gezogene Züge nach festem Fahrplan in einem durchgehend zweigleisigen Betrieb verkehren. Mit dem Bau der Strecke schuf Stephenson auch einige sehr beachtenswerte Bauwerke, darunter die Überschreitung des berühmten Moors Chat-Moss, den Tunnel unter der Stadt Liverpool, die 21 m tiefen Einschnitte durch den Olive Mount und das 18 m hohe Sankey-Viadukt, die hier alle abgebildet sind. Die herrlich kolorierten Tafeln zeigen darüber hinaus noch Züge auf offener Strecke, bei der Wasserstation und der Einfahrt in Manchester sowie das Eisenbahnbüro in Liverpool etc. - Stempel auf Vorsatz. Vereinzelt minimal fingerfleckig. Einband gering berieben und bestoßen. Rücken sorgfältig erneuert. Insgesamt sehr hübsches und wohlerhaltenes Exemplar. - Ottley 6420. Seller Inventory # 109560-01
