This is undoubtedly a considerable, and is likely to be regarded as an ambitious, undertaking. That it is one of not a little difficulty and enormous labour the author is fully aware. That such a work, at the very best, must leave much to be desired, he is also conscious. But he is, nevertheless, hopeful that, with all its imperfections on its head, the present volume may, to some extent, answer the everyday requirements of railway authorities, railway shareholders, railway freighters, and the general public - all of whom possess, in varying degrees, an interest in the subjects dealt with.Intended, as it has been, for the use of a wide area of railway interests, the work is necessarily of considerable range- and this circumstance may probably be found to be at once its chief merit and its greatest defect.

To have treated exhaustively any one of the many subjects dealt with would have involved a fulness of detail, a precision of analysis, and other characteristics that were impossible of attainment in one volume.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
