Published by the Industrial Railway Society (IRS) in 1997, 104 pages. Hardback with Dust Jacket - c.17cm by 23.5cm (N6527)

This book is a fascinating and detailed history of the tramways and railways operated by the John Knowles company. They were a manufacturer of refractory ware and stoneware pipes, and they used both standard and 18" gauge railways at their works in Derbyshire. The book contains several maps and scale drawings of the wagons and steam locomotives, and is illustrated throughout with around 66 photographs (9 of which are in colour).

The condition of the book is generally very good. The dust jacket has some light scuffs and wear along the edges and corners but is clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
