1890 P and O Pocket Book
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding
To the rear there are examples of signalling flags and maps of many P&O destinations. With the memoranda to the rear left blank, which is for the owner to recount their own travels. To the start there is a list of correspondence and agents at P&O in different UK locations as well as a list of their fleets. A fascinating piece of history, with many descriptions of the P&O lines, routes and locations. P&O introduced passenger services in 1844, with a leisure cruise from Southampton to the Mediterranean. Towards the end of the nineteenth century they introduced round trips to destinations such as Alexandria and Constantinople. With many illustrations of the liners. A scarce souvenir of the British travel industry at the end of the nineteenth century.
In the publisher's original cloth biding. Externally, smart with light rubbing to the head and tail of spine. A few marks to the boards and spine. Spine has faded. Final gathering from 'Western Australia' to the end is detached but present. Binding is tender in places. Pages are bright, with just the odd spot.
