Book Description Abbeville Press, New York, 1986. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Fine. First American Edition. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 140 (1) pp, India -- Prologue by Geoffrey Moorhouse. Rail Across India by Brian Hollingsworth: History; Indian Tracks; Hill Railways of India; Travel in India with mostly color illustrations throughout. Photographic Commentary by Paul C. Pet First American Edition, 1986. "India operates the second largest unified train system in the world and is a living museum for railroad buffs. As of 1986, fully one-third of the world's remaining steam locomotives still function daily on Indian Trackage, with gauges that range from 2 1/2 feet to 5 1/1 feet including a system of slightly less than the British gauge of 3 1/2 feet (1067 mm) -- because the British viceroy, Lord Mayo, preferred 1000 mm, a nice round number in metrics. The introduction provides the groundwork for an understanding of the visual and textual material that follows by relating the fascinating story of a 3000-year cultural and religious tradition; all the details on locomotive wheel arrangements, cylinder placement, gauges, signals, bridges, and system interchanges that so delight the rail buff." from the jacket flap. Not Price Clipped. Only the faintest wear to dj, else, Pristine, no wear. Clean, tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia. Blue cloth with blind-stamped black lettering to front board, and gilt lettering to spine. Size: Folio. Bookseller Inventory # 003489
