Martin Evans traces the development of Pacific locomotives since the Great Bear in 1908, through the Gresleys, Thompson & Peppercorn, Staniers, Southerns and finally BR. Well illustrated with black and white photographic plates.
Very good condition green cloth hardback book with gilt lettering to spine. Protected by an illustrated colour unclipped dustjacket which is showing wear and tear to edges and along spine. Inside, there is some foxing to the title page but the rest of the pages are in good condition. A couple of signatures inside the front cover of previous owners.
