Locomotives and Locomotive Building Book Description :

"This catalog, from one of the premier builders of American locomotives, is an outstanding example of the use of photography in 19th century advertising. Along with the Baldwin locomotive catalog of 1871/2, and the Grant catalog of the same period this is one of the earliest. The 22 collotypes from photographs are uncredited which is unusual for this early date in the US. As early collotypes they are extremely well done and show the work of master craftsmen. They are printed on light uncoated paper which is also somewhat unusual for the period."--Clark file 2012.

Locomotive Book Description :

The Caldecott Medal Winner, Sibert Honor Book, and New York Times bestseller Locomotive is a rich and detailed sensory exploration of America’s early railroads, from the creator of the “stunning” (Booklist) Moonshot. It is the summer of 1869, and trains, crews, and family are traveling together, riding America’s brand-new transcontinental railroad. These pages come alive with descriptive details of the journey: the sounds, speed, and strength of the mighty locomotives; the work that keeps them moving; and the thrill of travel from plains to mountain to ocean. Come sit inside the caboose, feel the heat of the engine, watch the landscape race by. Come ride the rails, come cross the young country!
