Book Condition: Near Fine


Original rust cloth on boards. No marks or damage. The first of a two-volume set. This thick, heavy book might appear to be overwhelming at first glance, but after thumbing through it I think it could be an enjoyable and informative read. A scarcity of illustrations has left more room for informative text, which is lively and direct. One can visualize the bitter quarrels, the endless maneuvers, and demanding physical requirements resulting in a new system of overland transport. Imagine having your local railroad amalgamated into a nationwide system, headquartered far away. The author makes it all believable ! 514 pp. Heavy book will need extra postage.
