HASKOLL, W. DAVIS. - Railway Construction, Second Series. Also Railways in the East, and generally in high thermometrical regions.

London, Atchley 1864. Two volumes quarto, publishers blindstamped cloth (one spine repaired); iv,201pp, 91 plates (most folding). Some spotting but quite a good copy. ¶ Despite the misleading title this is a re-issue of 'Railways in the East' - published the year before - with a new title page. Why it was re-issued this way is puzzling. Essential for the engineer in Asia Minor, Haskoll's earlier work 'Railway Construction' laid out the principles, 'Railways in the East' applies the lessons. With chapters on labour and materials, a chapter specific to Turkey, tunnels, bridges, stations, docks and jetties, rolling stock, masonry ... all illustrated from working drawings of executed works.
