Description: With 94 different transport and travel related quizzes, here's a book that should be in every transport enthusiast's collection. Particular points of nostalgic interest include: vintage aircraft (e.g. Ilyushin Il-62, Vickers VC10, Douglas DC-3, Lockheed Constellation); vintage railwayana (e.g. signage and rolling stock); vintage vehicles (e.g. Citroën DS, Hillman Minx); vintage car badges (specifically Vauxhall, Renault, and Rover); plus many, many more. There is also plenty to please budding geographers and travellers, with questions about – and accompanying illustrations of – famous buildings, mountains, and other landmarks from around the globe.
Illustrated throughout with b&w sketches.
Incredibly, the previous owner has refrained from writing down the answers on the pages, which means that the pages are all free from any marking. Similarly the page where the reader is invited to keep a record of their travels has been left empty. Having said that, there is substantial tanning to the page edges, and foxing is present on the first and last few pages – though this is to be expected in a paperback of this vintage. There is a slight crease or tear (approx. 1" in length) extending from the spine to the front cover, but this hasn't affected the binding, which remains tight. The cover shows signs of handling, but is otherwise clean and free of damage.
