My Railroad.

New York: Samuel Gabriel Sons, 1915. Small quarto. Double-sided accordion-fold comprising six paper covered board panels with maroon cloth joints. Cover title image plus eleven chromolithographed illustrations of trains on glazed paper, each with a caption printed below the image. The majority of the images features steam locomotives in various settings: on a turn-table, crossing bridges, at the water tank, etc.; and while most images show passenger trains, more utilitarian uses are depicted here as well, including a lumber train and a freight train. One panel shows an electric locomotive, a technology that was introduced into wide commercial use in the U.S. in 1895. Rare: this panorama is not held in any institutional collection. Some rubbing to cover corners, minor soiling. Very good. Item #28916

Price: $550.00
