the "History of Railways" series

Acquired at a second-hand book stall, a bound Volume 2 of the "History of Railways" series. It contains plenty of colour pages.
A brochure found inside said that binders cost $4.00. The cost of each issue is unclear.

So far identification of country of publication has not been made.

Pictures of Australian trains, such as a NSW V-set, and dual gauge in WA suggests a publishing date a little after 1968.

The pages seem to be foolscap size rather than A4.

An earlier bound volume of weekly booklets that was only Black & White, may have been from the 1930s.

The History of Railways series was put out in a series about 1971/72 and there were 2 distinct sets but as I don't have the bound volumes in my possession right now. I seem to remember they were about 70 cents or 90 cents each.

I have my bound copies of the History of Model and Miniature Railways here and the RRP for each magazine is 70 cents. So the History of Railways came out before it I think so would be the same price or near too it.

FYI, some/all of Charles Dicken's novel, such as "A tale of two cities" was published in weekly installments. Each episode was written from one week to the next. As a result, nothing in this novel was succinct.
