This is a really interesting document but the maps are tiny.

As an historical document (to accompany the same publishers Bradshaw's Railway Guide) this map is fine. But the sheer proliferation of Edwardian rail lines in 1907 coupled with the paper stock size/single black ink used to print it out impairs reading/understanding of the system. But there is a solution! Get back on to Amazon and buy the "Railway Atlas Then and Now" by Smith and Turner and published by Ian Allan in 2012. Whilst it compares the UK rail system of 1912 with 2012 it is a proper Atlas (large scale, multi page, multi colour) with a huge amount of supporting data on the 'state-of-play' of the current rails and what has become of the 1912 one.

This map shows the extent of the British and Irish railway system at its peak in 1907. It's well printed on good quality heavyweight paper and measures approx 24x38 inches and comes folded in a card sleeve which carries a very concise yet comprehensive history of Britain's railways and a brief biography of George Bradshaw. The map includes enlarged views of the railways in several major cities.

My only small criticism is that there is in places so much information crammed into a small area that it's difficult to read, but this may well be a fault of the original rather than the reproduction process. Overall a very useful and well produced facsimile and good value for money.

Disappointing.I bought this map to supplement the excellent guide and wish I had listened to previous reviewers.It is poorly printed on shiny paper which will soon tear and is definitely overpriced.It is difficult to read and some of the urban areas are so smudged/ blurred that even a magnifying glass fails to improve them.What is needed is a completely new 'redraw' of the original map and a print on heavier matt paper, clearly more expensive , but what is the point of producing a map that is difficult to read? Superb book, woeful map.

The map alongside, the earlier (in date), Bradshaw Railway Guide is very interesting. Though the map is very detailed, and therefore difficult to read in some areas, it provides a real insight in to what lines we have lost. Excellent productions, both Map and Guide.
