A Selection of Guinness Books

From a lovely - if somewhat surprising - book about abandoned railway lines, through books about the natural world, glamour in fashion and "beards and moustaches" to pure reference books, this section of our site houses a mixed pick of some books which don't fit naturally elsewhere on the site. Some of the weird and wonderful Guinness books on this page may entice collectors of the usual record and reference books to branch out and explore some of the less well-known editions.
