BWM469.4:- 

Railway guide, Bradshaw's Railway Companion, railway maps and timetables, published by Bradshaw and Blacklock, 27 Brown Street, Manchester, 1841.
The railway to Hampshire is the London and South Western Railway, which began as the London and Southampton Railway, opened throughout in 1840, one year before this guide. This railway is described on:-
P.10 map of the LSWR line - recorded separately.
P.11 has a timetable of passenger trains from Vauxhall, and to Vauxhall, on weekdays and Sunday, and goods trains; and fare tables.
One authority, A Jackson, states that Bradshaw published a monthly railway guide from December 1841, contradicting himself in a late edition of his book by saying from January 1842; this specimen is probably the earliest Bradshaw?
