London The London School of Economics and Political Science (University of London) 1913 Hard Cover Good No Jacket 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 18pp + 444pp + 238pp. This volumes appears to be 3 documents bound together, relating to lectures and classes at the LSE for the session 1912-13. The 18pp section at the front is a mini prospectus of courses offered and previous students and their railway companies. Bound in are 2 further documents:- : 1st July 1913: Section 1: General Railway Classification of Goods By Merchandise Trains; Section 2: Special Classification of Explosives and Other Dangerous Goods By Merchandise Train. 1st January 1912: Special Instructions Relating to Goods, Mineral and Live Stock Traffic. An index to sections1/2 is pasted to the rear endpaper. These documents were probably softback and are now bound in a contemporary binding, label ramains to spine, gilt titling, stating the contents to be 'Railway Classification', with 'Lenadues' under. Light wear only to boards, some mainly pencilled annotation, a number of pages are reinforced, some sections are browned, the whole is tight, and a fascinating period piece. Uncommon!
