2 x hardback published by c1945.

Both books are in Poor condition.
Railroads: There is a neat dedication “To Richard From Grandpa” dated Xmas 1945 inside of the front cover and the recipient’s name written on the back fep.  The pages are mostly clean with a few pencil marks and remain bound as a block with some tape repairs.  The last page has a large closed tear with a significant tape repair.  All pages are present.  The covers are in Fair condition with a tape repair to the spine and writing to the back cover, bumping to the corners and rubbing to the edges.  This is a very rare book with 24 full page colour illustrations by G P Micklewright.
My Book of Trains:  There are a few pencil marks, mostly to the final illustration.  The pages are in poor condition with 4 loose pages and significant damage to a number of the pages with almost complete closed tears to some, creasing to others and a little loss to the edges.  Because there are some loose pages I cannot be sure that the book is complete.  There is no list of illustrations and the pages are not numbered.  The feps are both loose.  The covers are in poor condition being completely split along the spine and loose from the book. This is a rare book with 20 colour illustrations by Stanley Charles Rowles.
Two interesting books which suffer from their condition.
