"Iron Horses American Locomotive 1829 - 1900" was written by E.P. Alexander. This state first edition was published in 1941.
Colorful stories of the old steam engines of yesteryear fill these pages — from the steam carriage operated on the streets of Paris in 1769 to the mighty locomotives that thundered across the American West in the latter half of the 19th century. 98 plates of fine, rare illustrations, many rendered by the author.
This book is in very good vintage condition. The dust jacket has some chipping and tearing at the top and spine. The book has red cloth covers. The binding is tight and the pages are clean.
A great book for any locomotive or train aficionado.
