The text itself, by LTC Rolt, is of course excellent.
I already had a nice, small, paperback edition, purchased many years ago.
I bought this copy to send to a friend, but found that, although the format is slightly larger, the reproduction of the pictures left a lot to be desired. Some of the excellent engravings, especially that of the Pontcyssyllte aqueduct, had been transmuted into poorer quality photographs, which is a pity.
