Railway & Travel Monthly 1910-1922 Ref: Run 116  


A fine and rare complete 25-volume run of Railway & Travel Monthly uniformly bound in the publisher's dark blue cloth. Half-yearly volumes (eight months in Volume 1) from May 1910 to December 1922. Large octavo format with colour and monochrome plates, lavish text illustrations. On average there are about 500 pages per volume. Subject matter is about 75% railways, the rest being shipping with occasional articles on motoring and early aviation. Plus notes and news, letters, questions and answers. Index/title page at the front of each volume.
Railway & Travel Monthly was set up as a rival to the established Railway Magazine with a slightly different slant. It was more lavishly produced with colour in the text as well as the usual frontispiece plates. The First World War caused a reduction in colour and paper quality but there was still plenty of interest to be found. After the war RTM lost out in the battle for circulation and the shareholding was bought by the owners of the Railway Magazine. RTM and RM were merged from January 1923 under the Railway Magazine banner. Complete sets of Railway & Travel monthly are very difficult to obtain these days and this is the first good set we have been able to offer for several years.
Price: 1,200.00
