The Locomotive Engine and Philadelphia's Share in its Early Improvements.
by Harrison, Joseph Jr.

Publisher Information:
Philadelphia: George Gebbie, 1972.

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.
