GWR Passenger Time Tables July - September 1900. Ref: B569  

Great Western Railway.

Large format, 180 pages, no map (possibly as issued), original red/blue pictorial covers unskilfully covered with clear protective film, contents appear complete but rodent attack to the corners of about 15 leaves slightly affects the text on some pages. The copy embodies most possible defects : rather like "J" of Three Men In A Boat, who considered that as he suffered from every disease except housemaid's knee he would be invaluable to medical schools, this time table would set a testing exercise for trainee book cataloguers. It's not worth the effort, however, so I'll just say the time tables are mostly complete and it's a reasonable working copy.
