An Encyclopaedia of World Bridges (Pen & Sword)

Back Order

An illustrated encyclopaedia of bridges, covering over 1200 bridges in over 170 countries around the world.

Bridges are one of humankind's most important achievements, enabling people and goods to cross rivers and gorges, shortening journeys considerably and allowing for less undulating routes to be taken.

This book lists bridges around the world alphabetically, with entries provided for a selection of historical and significant bridges, including road, rail and pedestrian use bridges. Each entry consists of a short description and history of the bridge, with colour photographs included with around half of the entries.

A short introduction, a glossary of terms and a full index covering all entries are also included. Hardback. 354 pages.
