Description

Originally published in 1916, this book forms part of a two-volume set on the history of transportation in modern England, taking the term 'modern' as meaning 'the period beginning with about the close of the fifteenth century and ending with approximately the middle of the nineteenth century'. Volume one covers the period from 1500 up until the introduction of steam and volume two focuses on the development of railways and the effect of this change on other modes of transportation. Both books contain detailed textual notes and a comprehensive bibliography is also included. The set will be of value to anyone with an interest in transportation and British history.
