The Locomotive Engine and Philadelphia's Share in its Early Improvements.
by Harrison, Joseph Jr.
Illus., including two splendid fold out engravings of early locomotives. Rebound, internally very good. Prev. owner's inscription. Stated "revised edition"; the first publication was in The Journal of the Franklin Institute. Thus, this is the first appearance in book form. A history of the locomotive engine 1829-1843, de facto the story of the Baldwin Locomotive works. The author's claim that this is "the most important machine of modern times" is probably no overstatement.
