The first book released in The Railway Series
Presented in a free gift box
A rare and collectable treasure, the three railway engines first edition has been re-released as this premium book. As the first book ever released from The Railway Series by Rev. W. Awdry, the book introduces Edward, Gordon, Henry and their life on the railway. Grownups will know everybody’s favourite little blue tank doesn’t make an appearance in this edition, but as the first book of the Railway Series, it’s a must-have to start off anyone’s collection.
As a special, personalised edition, the book itself features the individual’s name on the cover and written along the top of each page. Every time the recipient reads the story, they’ll be filled with pride at seeing their name featured throughout. Including a special <strong>Message</strong> on the title page, the book features C. Reginald Dalby’s original illustrations, remastered in this collector’s edition.
