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.
How to Personalize The Three Railway Engines First Edition
Personalize with any name up to 12 characters, and a personal message of two lines, up to 40 characters per line. Check your personalization: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.
Cannot fault the service overall. They had to redo the book as there was a defect but customer service were so easy to contact and they resolved the issue in a few hours. Agree with some others, it would be nice to have a tracking code for Royal Mail but received an email telling me my book is on the way so I knew roughly to expect it in a few days. Overall can't fault the service.
