This form will search our rare books only. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

If you enter two or more words in this box, the search will look for both words, but not necessarily in the order you enter. Don't worry about upper and lower case. The search ignores words of less than three letters, such as initials like the "H" and "G" in "H. G. Wells".

To look for part of a word, use the wildcard * - for example, lon* will find "London" and "Longfellow". If you want to exclude a word from your search, put a minus sign in front of it: -pirates bucc* will find buccaneers, but not pirates.


This form will search our rare books only. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

You can make a very specific search using this form: keep your search broad enough to find what you are looking for! If you enter two or more words in the Author, Title, Publisher or Keywords fields we'll look for all of them, though not necessarily in the order you enter them.

Where a book has more than one ISBN we use the British ISBN; and we also tend to use the 10-digit ISBN instead of the 13-digit one.

Victorian Railways - the Morse Electric Telegraph - A Handbook for Telegraphists

Victorian Railways, Victoria

This copy is the first edition of 1916 (the 2nd edition didn't come out until sometime in the 1940's).
VERY GOOD. Covers a little dusty and slightly rubbed, paper label tanned and lightly surface rubbed, internally fine. There are a few pencil markings and notes to the text easily and cleanly erased when tested - but which we have otherwise left intact.
